The Garden Pool Team

These are the core ideals that shape what we do as a team at Garden Pool.

The Garden Pool Team consists of an all-volunteer group of dedicated individuals with diverse backgrounds. They all have one thing in common, a passion for growing food the GP way!

There are many other folks who have helped us in our journey and many more volunteers behind the scenes today. We have a community with over 1,000 members in our local GP meetup. We meet for free classes, tours, volunteer projects, potlucks, food drives and strengthening the community.

This group of non-profit volunteers helps make everything we do at the Garden Pool possible. Get to know some members of the Garden Pool Team:
