Opelika Grows


As an effort in localism, O Grows seeks to model an approach to civic engagement that relies on local capital and capacity to address local needs. School reform, hunger relief and city beautification are not specific to any one city but every city has the potential to leverage the learning potential of gardens in service of community need.


O Grows installs gardens (and programming) in service of locally identified needs.

What We Do

Built upon the history of Alabama agriculture to sustain its citizens, O Grows began in 2012. We install and maintain gardens, as well as provide related programming. Our gardens serve as outdoor classrooms, allowing children and adults to pursue life-long learning and civic engagement.
