Seeds of Hope

Our Mission

The mission of Seeds of Hope is to promote physical and spiritual wellness among individuals and communities throughout the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles by coordinating a diocese-wide approach to food production and distribution for the benefit of the hungry and undernourished among us while providing health and nutrition education within this context for those suffering from food-related ailments.

Who We Are

Seeds of Hope is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles which seeks to help congregations, communities, and schools turn unused land into productive gardens and orchards to provide healthy and fresh food in areas of need across the county.

We look to create and sustain gardens and garden-based programs throughout the Diocese of Los Angeles to promote physical and spiritual wellness for individuals and communities. In coordinating this diocese-wide approach to food production and distribution, we are able to benefit the hungry and undernourished in our churches and also within our broader communities.  

Through garden workshops, nutrition education, and with creative collaboration with Churches, we are working to Cultivate Wellness in Los Angeles to create stronger, healthier churches and communities!
