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.
Help Keep Us GrowingYour donation is appreciated and put to good use growing gardens, cooking in the community and other direct impact ways that improve our community. A large portion of our mission is funded by individual contributions and they are appreciated. If you would like to discuss how you or your business could collaborate with Seedeaf we have innovative ways to partner.
