About Us

Kansas City Community Gardens(KCCG) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of low-income households and other members of the community by helping them grow their own nutritious fruits and vegetables. KCCG member gardeners develop self-reliance, knowledge about nutrition, and an appreciation for the environment, while enjoying exercise, social interaction and the satisfaction of growing their own food.

KCCG operates two community gardening sites. Our main garden is located at 6917 Kensington, on the southwest side of Swope Park. Our administrative offices are located there. Also at the Swope Park location is the Beanstalk Children's garden.

Since 2002, KCCG also has operated an auxiliary location at 14th and Indiana. Commonly known as the "Freeway Garden" because it can be seen from I-70 at the Benton Curve, this location plus our Swope Park community garden site have provided gardeners with fantastic crop yields. Reservations for both sites fill up fast, illustrating the need and interest among our community gardeners!

Throughout the metro area individuals and groups garden in backyards, vacant lots, at churches and community centers all with assistance from Kansas City Community Gardens.
