The Edible Apartment is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  We re-purpose underutilized land in urban areas - particularly on apartment building sites - to create a food source, educate and inspire people to take charge of their well-being and community.

 

Our Mission

As part of our community outreach, we offer regular gardening and wellness-related classes, farm-to-table functions, TEA Parties and garden work days.  Our mission also includes using our resources for rehabilitation.  That includes partnering with prisons, addiction recovery facilities and Veterans to share the healing benefits of gardening, cooking and community.  

 


Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.
— May Sarton
