Green Corn Project

About GCP

“​Green Corn Project (GCP) is a grassroots, volunteer-run organization dedicated to helping Central Texans in need grow their own organic vegetables. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, GCP installs organic food gardens for elderly, low-income, and disabled community members as well as for elementary schools, community centers, and shelters in underserved areas of Austin. We turn unused land into garden beds that provide food, education, and a sense of accomplishment and pride for all involved in their creation and maintenance.”

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Dig-ins: Join GCP with projects like helping someone start their own vegetable garden or mulching a school garden for summer.
  • Dig-in Leader Training: Receive special training so that you can lead the next Dig-in.
  • Seeds to Start workshops: Help out with this semiannual event that teaches Austinites how to grow their own nutritious food.
