In partnering with education-based gardens in the local area and communities across the U.S., the Goodcents Foundation will continue to develop sustainable educational programs. These community-based educational gardens demonstrate and teach the overall gardening process, from seed to harvest.
Goodcents Foundation’s main mission is to develop sustainable educational programs. This is accomplished through building awareness of available resources by educating communities on how to grow and share food at the local level, utilizing students and seniors, optimally in tandem.
Goodcents Foundation’s educational garden partner is Kansas City Community Gardens. We help foster KCCG’s mission to support schools in growing their own vegetable gardens that increase students’ access to healthy food, hands-on learning and community building. We have recently sponsored the buckets going to these students.
In addition, Goodcents Foundation is a proud sponsor of the Gardens at Sunset – a two-part event, benefitting KCCG’s mission to inspire and empower low-income households, schools and community groups to grow their own vegetables and fruit.
