About Anchor Gardens

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
