Anchor Gardens

Welcome neighbors!

Our mission is to make gardening resources and expertise accessible to everyone in the Municipality of Anchorage regardless of income or home ownership status. We connect individuals and their skills into a network for the purpose of building social capital through gardening.

To achieve this mission, a team of coaches volunteer their time to mentor anyone who wants to garden. Coaches support their neighbors with:

  • garden design
  • troubleshooting
  • access to resources (seeds, nursery pots, compost, etc)
  • connections to a community working to improve food security in Anchorage

Join to find a coach in your neighborhood

Additionally, pop up classes, demonstration gardens, seed libraries and upcycling campaigns are underway. We are working to reduce, reuse and repurpose across our local food system.

Fall stockpiles

I Street Community Garden has materials for putting your garden to bed for the winter. Stockpile schedule updated weekly as long as material is available.

Got extra veggies?

The harvest is coming in and we know we’re rich because we have food to share. A good starting point is to share with your neighbors. It may encourage them to start a garden.

Next, think about our partner organizations:

  • Food for Thought Alaska. Their mission: Eliminating hunger and food waste in Southcentral Alaska through story sharing and community collaborations
  • AnchorageFood.org: List of free food pantry locations.
