Boxed Organics is committed to community building and food justice. Guerrilla Gardening and Guerrilla Harvest are our two key programs.
Guerrilla Gardening is a collaborative effort promoting an edible landscape. With tools, resources and training Guerrilla Gardening empowers individuals and communities to grow their own foods and take back control of what they eat.

With just 10 volunteer Pioneer Planters in our first year Guerrilla Gardening distributed over 3500 thousand food bearing plants reaching 500 families and individuals. In our second year 20 Pioneer Planters produced and distributed over 6000 plants reaching over 800 families and individuals.
In our third year we expanded our program to work with Forest Glen pre-school and started Guerrilla Harvest. This year we are piloting a model permaculture growing plan, documenting a step-by-step process for people to learn how to grow their own food in an affordable, sustainable way.
