The Giving Grove: Sustainable Food, Strengthening Community, and Neighborhood Nutrition

Rob Reiman, CEO of The Giving Grove, explains the mission and vision of The Giving Grove.



Our mission is provide healthy calories, strengthen community and improve the urban environment through a nationwide network of sustainable little orchards to dramatically increase access to healthy food.


We envision:

  • thousands of little orchards in food insecure urban neighborhoods across the nation;

  • a system of local food production that feeds people for decades;

  • a national network of neighborhood stewards trained in holistic methods for growing fruit; and

  • urban neighborhoods transformed by their own work and generosity.
