The Rhode Island 'Back Yard' Garlic Project

Sign up to participate in our Garlic Project!

Thank you for participating in Digging Education's Backyard Garlic Project 2024-2025.

Your participation in this project helps to build resiliency and food security and improves residential and community landscapes through the transformation of lawns and fallow spaces into regenerative garden spaces.

Choose how to participate:

1. Donate a portion of your yard! Lawn shares are a great way for growers to find land to grow their crops. In return you get a regenerative garden designed in your yard!

2. Donation funds the materials for the project. We will build the gardens, tend and care for the garden, harvest and cure the garlic, cover crop, and naturally fertilize the garden for the next growing cycle Organic seed garlic retails for $30/lb.

Garlic is planted in the fall (October-December) (We will connect to schedule planting)

All participants receive a percentage of the garlic grown on their property. Shares can be further split and/or donated to our partner Bay Spring Community Center.
