Who We Are
Seeds of Hope is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles which seeks to Cultivate Wellness in our community. We provide garden-based nutrition education and practical cooking instruction to help our friends and neighbors live healthier. We also work with congregations, communities, and schools to transform unused land in to productive, lovely gardens and orchards to provide fresh and nutritious food in areas of need across the six-county diocese.
We're planting seeds to grow a more beautiful, equitable Los Angeles.
In our work, Seeds of Hope follows a very basic equation: Need + Capacity = Responsibility. We believe in equal, affordable access to fresh produce and healthy food. Unfortunately, this is not the reality for many communities. As a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, we have the capacity to make a difference... which means we have a responsibility to do so.
Through nutrition education, practical, hands-on cooking instruction, food distribution, and garden building, Seeds of Hope works to cultivate a culture of wellness in the Diocese of Los Angeles. Luckily, we get a lot of help in this work from amazing partners who share our passion for food justice , food recovery, and healthy living.
The work we do isn't possible without an amazing network of support.
