Hilltop Urban Gardens (HUG)

Founded in 2010, Hilltop Urban Gardens (HUG) partners with the community to grow healthy food and people.  With a mission to foster food sovereignty and racial and economic justice, HUG is led by and centers its work on economically disadvantaged people and people of color.  Food is distributed at its seasonal Saturday produce stand, and those taking food are asked to give back to the community in some way—which could encompass volunteering in their gardens, making quilts for children, or contributing in some other way to the neighborhood.  The nonprofit also offers a range of social and educational programs including numerous workshops and youth internships.
