GPGP's mission is to improve the food security and nutrition education of people with limited economic means.
"By teaching adults, children, and communities how to grow fresh produce organically and providing them with the tools and nutrition education they need to take control over their health, GPGP is benefiting the environment and the community as a whole through our programs and services for years to come," Breidel said.
"I believe that the recession and the associated rising cost of groceries, as well as the discussions in the media about food safety have contributed to more and more people turning to Growing Places Garden Project for services," said Jodi Breidel, executive director of GPGP. "Our vegetable garden and nutrition education programs help address these issues and concerns by providing people with the tools and education they need in order to grow, cook, and store their own food."
Over its eight years of operation, GPGP project has helped approximately 678 people start gardens, gain self confidence, and learn how to take more control over their health.
GPGP's geographic focus is a 22-town radius in North Central Massachusetts.
"I am going to be the executive director of Growing Places Garden Project, which is known as GPGP, in Harvard," Breidel said.
GPGP was founded by dedicated vegetable gardeners Kate Deyst and Cindy Buhner in 2001.
