THE GIVING GROVE

LITTLE ORCHARDS. BIG IMPACT. 

Grow North Texas has become the Dallas-area affiliate for The Giving Grove, based in Kansas City, Missouri.  As affiliates, we will support neighborhood volunteers in planting and caring for fruit trees, nut trees, blackberries, herbs and pollinators that improve the urban environment, increase tree canopy for underserved communities and provide a sustainable source of free, organically- grown food for neighborhoods facing high rates of food insecurity.

The Giving Grove and GROW North Texas share the vision of thousands of community orchards in food insecure neighborhoods across the nation creating a sustainable system of local food production and a network of urban green spaces serving the community.

Giving Grove orchards are community lead and

  • Grow Fruits, berries, nuts, and herbs that are free to community members. 
  • Serve as a community space for members of all ages to bond as they learn about local food production and healthy eating habits. 

  • Have proven to provide big opportunities for positive transformation in neighborhoods. 

  • Provide beautification through sustainable and nurturing care from stewards at each site   


This project is made possible through a partnership with Communities Foundation of Texas' W.W Caruth, Jr Fund as part of the Food Equity Innovation Challenge.
