We are an incubator for innovative community garden programs. Earthshare Gardens facilitates and initiates new garden ideas to benefit our Lafayette community.
Some history of our community programs:
Our Community Roots program offered advice and resources to help start school, neighborhood, after-school and
community gardens around Acadiana.
In 2013 alone, The FoodNet Foodbank received more than 3,000lbs of fresh vegetables, grown in a dedicated
“Come Grow with Me” donation garden, founded in 2012 at Earthshare Gardens.
The “H.A.L.T. Giving Garden” is an innovative partnership that provides at-risk teens with a hands-on gardening and community service experience, led by counselors from the juvenile drug court program of the 15th Judicial District Court. Supported by Earthshare Gardens from 2010-2014 and still ongoing as an independent program.
