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

 

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.

Perennial Club

Perennials plants, those that return each year, are a wonderful component of any garden. They quietly bear their flowers, their fruits, or the leaves we love. They beckon pollinators and set down deep roots, providing many environmental services at once. Perennials have come to be an important addition to our vegetable gardens, and they have set roots in my imagination in a number of ways.

Please consider helping Seedleaf develop deeper roots with your sustaining gift today so that we can continue our generative work with your support!
