Thank you for supporting Garden Friendly Community Fort Bragg and our mission to promote local gardening and increase food independence and wellness.
It takes more than just hard work and sweat equity to build and maintain a garden. Your donations to GFCFB make it possible for us to purchase materials to build and outfit community gardens for success. Here are some of the many needs your donations cover:
Garden tools - shovels, rakes, forks
Materials to build tool sheds and raised, ADA-compliant beds
Fencing and staking
In these uncertain times, when hope seems hard to come by, there seems to be nothing more uplifting and positive than coming together around local, sustainable, healthy food, and connecting with one another and to the land.
Together we can build a Garden Friendly Community, and together we can build a more equitable, sustainable, and resilient Fort Bragg for current residents and for generations to come. Thanks for your support!

Items to donate?
Do you have seeds, or tools or other items that you think would be helpful in a community garden that you would like to give? Please email and let us know what you would like to give and we'll let you know if is something that we can use.
Do you own land that you think would be perfect for a new community garden? We are working with several land owners to do just that. We can partner with you to develop a plan that meets your unique site and requirements. Please email us to explore the possibilities.
Garden Friendly Community Fort Bragg (GFCFB) is still a very young organization that has not quite grown to the point where it can handle all the aspects of being a stand-alone 501(c)(3) non profit. The responsibilities and effort required to provide financial oversight, accounting and tax reporting for an organization can be a real distraction and burden for a group like ours. But thanks to the support of a mature non-profit, who is willing to act as our fiscal sponsor, we are able to focus on our mission and let our sponsor carry some of the financial weight.
Mendocino Coast Children's Fund (MCCF) has believed in and supported our mission from the beginning, and is the organization that has taken us under their wing to shepherd us along the path. They make it possible for GFCFB to accept tax-deductible, charitable contributions for our work under their non-profit Tax ID.
We are separate organizations, with aligned missions that each work, in our distinct ways, to help ensure a resilient community and food-secure families here in Fort Bragg. Thank you, Mendocino Coast Children's Fund!
