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.
