Garden Pool began in 2009 as one family’s backyard project and quickly evolved into a movement. Ten years later, Garden Pool is an internationally-recognized charitable organization and has over 1,700 local community volunteers in the Phoenix area. After partnering with the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), Garden Pool Founder Dennis McClung was given the title of Goodwill Ambassador for Sustainable Development in recognition of GP’s impact on the lives of people all over the world.

 

Garden Pool’s mission is to continue to bring innovative and meaningful sustainable solutions to local and global communities, including:

  • the Climate Smart Farm, a self-sustaining ecosystem to grow food with 98% less water
  • the Seed Library Program, providing 4.5 million people with access to free garden seeds
  • 3D printing and sustainable manufacturing
  • 3D design workshops to teach the public how to design their own resilient food systems
  • disaster recovery in countries impacted by the effects of climate-change
