Nourishing Communities by Growing + Cooking + Sharing + Recycling Food

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


Seedleaf volunteers and staff cook food with the general public during year-round soup-making demonstrations and food preservation workshops, with at risk youth in summer programming, and with young mothers learning to feed their growing families healthy and nutritious food.


Seedleaf farmers, volunteers, and community gardeners grow food at a variety of community gardens and urban lots “microfarms” around Lexington’s North Side.


Seedleaf farmers, staff, and volunteers share food with community members through the distribution of vegetables grown in our community gardens and on microfarms.


Seedleaf staff and volunteers recycle food in partnership with local businesses and the City of Lexington by composting organic wastes generated by coffee shops, restaurants, and our community gardens.
