Everett Community Growers members work to create spaces for growing food in the city, as well as conduct workshops and other community engagement activities aimed at increasing residents’ knowledge and understanding of health equity and food justice.

Anyone can volunteer at the Northern Strand Community Farm (check out our calendar page for volunteer days). ECG is also working on advocating for policy changes to support community gardening and urban farming.
