Nourishing Communities by Growing + Sharing Food

Working to increase the amount, affordability, nutritional value, and sustainability of food available to people at risk of hunger in central Kentucky

The SEEDS 2016 Giving Campaign

Summer is just around the corner… to make this year’s SEEDS summer youth program happen, we need to raise $9,000 before June 1st. Will you help?

Seedleaf exists to nourish communities by growing and sharing food.

We are dedicated to improving healthy food access by maintaining community gardens where produce is shared with neighbors. 

Many of our Lexington neighbors live in food deserts where access to healthy food and transportation do not exist.  This situation increases the risk for diabetes, obesity, malnutrition, and other chronic health problems.

We also have a composting program that collects food waste from local restaurants, Master Community Gardener classes, and educational programming for youth.
