Opelika Grows promotes gardening in service of locally identified needs.


As an effort in localism, Opelika Grows seeks to model an approach to civic engagement that relies on local capital and capacity to address local needs. School reform, hunger relief and city beautification are not specific to any one city but every city has the potential to leverage the learning potential of gardens in service of community need.
