Thank you for your support!

The Cooperative Gardens Commission is a new project fiscally sponsored by the Experimental Farm Network Cooperative, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Philadelphia, PA.

The Cooperative Gardens Commission is working to increase community food production and food access from coast to coast. Our primary aim is to connect those with food-growing resources — including seeds, soil, tools, equipment, land, labor, and knowledge — with those who lack such resources. We sent free seeds to 257 seed hubs across 41 states, supplying 12,000 gardens in 2020.

We intend to continue seed distribution efforts for coming seasons as well. 

Our 2020 distribution costs came to about $4,000, including packaging, shipping, and materials. In 2021, we anticipate our costs will be even higher.
