The Need

Sierra County is one of the most food-insecure counties in the country

The food insecurity rate for children is at 33.7%

26.7% of the total population and 43.7% of our children

live at or below the Federal Poverty level.

60.2 Percent of families are single-parent families, twice the statewide average.

The Coronavirus pandemic and recent fires have both taken their toll.

Monsoon flooding has ruined grain crops on farms 

Our Mission


Non-Profit People Growing Together is committed to Growing Youth, Growing Gardens, Greenhouses, and Growing Community to help maintain year-round high desert Sierra County food security

What We Do

What We Do: 
Building Soil to provide nutrient-rich growing environments in the high desert. 

Model a Sustainable Earth Battery Greenhouse to conserve water and mitigate harsh temperatures, wind, and water events that occur in the high desert habitats. 

Grow Organic produce year-round to sustain food banks and provide low-cost organic produce to the citizens of Sierra County.


Educate and support parties interested in home-based produce gardening.


Cooperate with other non-profits such as the 4th Street Community Garden, churches, and civic clubs to increase food availability locally. 

How We Do It:  

We Organize Individuals and Organizations to contribute time and funds so that we and future generations will thrive.
