About Grassroots Garden Group
Westchester resident Bethanny Alexander thought it would be fun to form a garden club and give back to the community. With the help of neighborhood friends, Grassroots Garden Group planted its first seeds in June of 2015. As more Westchester residents joined the group, more work was able to be accomplished around town, and what started out as the cleaning and beautification of a handful of community spaces has blossomed into an effort to support neighbors in need.
In the fall of 2017, we ran out of places to plant our collection of tulip bulbs, so we bagged them, sold them to fellow residents, and donated the proceeds to the Westchester Food Pantry. This planted a new seed of partnership and encouraged us to discover new ways to beautify the community while raising funds for the pantry. To learn more about our annual events, please visit our Volunteer and Events pages.
Grassroots Garden Group’s mission is to make our yards, our neighborhoods, and our community as beautiful as they can be.
Meetings are held on the last Monday of the month, February - October. In addition to planning food pantry fundraising events, we also host guest speakers, discuss various gardening topics, and hold special group events.
Come join us and let’s bloom together!
