Sioux Falls’ Food Security & Healthy Eating Strategy Team is excited to announce Garden Week, a grassroots initiative taking place from May 20 to May 24. The aim is to bring people together to create gardens in different neighborhoods across the city, promoting deeper connections with our neighborhoods.

Growing Together, Growing Green

Garden Week invites everyone to join hands and work towards a greener, more sustainable future. With the help of volunteers, land partners, and community organizations, Garden Week aims to turn neighborhoods into vibrant green spaces where people can come together to grow food and strengthen community bonds.

A Week of Growth and Celebration

Each day of Garden Week will focus on a different neighborhood, with morning and afternoon shifts available for those who want to participate. Together, we’ll plant seeds, tend to gardens, and build stronger connections with each other and the Earth. 

Celebrating with Food, Music, and Learning

In the evenings, Garden Week will come alive with food, music, and seminars led by local agricultural experts. It’s a chance to celebrate our achievements, enjoy good food, and learn from each other about sustainable gardening practices.

Join the Movement

Individuals, businesses, and organizations who share a love for community are invited to join Garden Week. Whether you’re a volunteer, a land partner, or part of a community organization, there’s a place for you in this movement.

This week-long event is a project of the Food Security & Healthy Eating Strategy Team, a community-wide group facilitated by Sioux Falls Thrive, to create equitable and sustainable access to nutritious food in each neighborhood in a dignified and culturally appropriate manner.

Get Involved Today

To kick off Garden Week, the Community Revitalization Collective will host a gardening forum on Saturday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church. This forum will be a chance for everyone to come together, share ideas, and make plans to ensure Garden Week is a success.
