Our purpose is to engage in activities to produce plants, educational opportunities and provide funds for donation to community based, not-for-profit gardening and civic beautification groups.

We are a not-for-profit organization incorporated in the state of Missouri with IRS 501(c)3 status.  We were incorporated in 2016 and operate out of a set of greenhouses at the South Technical High School in the Sunset Hills subdivision of St. Louis.  Our group is volunteer-based with a couple of dozen people.  We have many experienced, master-level gardeners and as a group we annually give over 10,000 hours of volunteer time in our local gardening community.
