GYO families grow their own fresh, healthy food in home-based backyard and market gardens. We provide training, technical support, seeds, plants, tools and tilling services. Many families share food with neighbors and some freeze or can harvest for winter months. Some families supplement their income by selling their excess veggies at local farmers markets.

Since 2012, families have grown more than 113,000 pounds of food in this program. We are one of over 30 sites partially funded by Grow Appalachia! Because we always need supplies, various sponsorship opportunities exist for garden suppliers.
