Grant #29 Lara – Backyard Growers
We proudly gave our foundation’s largest grant ever — $35,000 — to the inspired team at Backyard Growers. 8 years ago, Lara responded to the high cost of quality food for her family by tearing up her lawn and growing her own. Then, she helped neighbors do the same. Now, Lara’s organization has built over 200 gardens and feeds over 2,500 people in her community.
