Our 2016 grantee, From the Ground Up Farms Inc., was in the path of the deadly Camp Fire that blazed through Northern California last November. Created by Jenny Lowrey, From the Ground Up includes 17 nonprofit community gardens across the Chico area. These gardens, located at homeless shelters, residential treatment facilities, and women’s shelters, have become a vital piece of the community, helping to provide fresh food and educational opportunities.

Jenny is already hard at work rebuilding the From the Ground Up. “This was already an impoverished area of Butte County and a complete food desert. Our goal is to get this large, centrally-located community garden repaired, rebuilt and replanted ASAP, so we can again have free food available to folks who need it now more than ever,” notes Jenny.

In light of this tragedy and Jenny’s tireless work to better her community, we will be providing Ground Up Farms, Inc. with a $5000 grant to help them get back up and running as soon as possible in addition to our annual grant cycle.

If you’d like to support Jenny’s incredible work, please consider donating to support the rebuild.
