Organization Profile

KNOX, Inc.


Using horticulture as a catalyst for community engagement, KNOX forges partnerships between residents, businesses, and government, providing leadership to build stronger, greener, healthier and more beautiful neighborhoods in Hartford.

Support Model

KNOX supports school gardens through field trips to our demonstration garden, after school and in-school programming, and contributions such as soil, consultation, and coordinating work days. Schools near one of KNOX's 20 community gardens utilize the neighborhood space to involve parents and families in the gardening experience, to encourage sustainability and transferable health. KNOX's unique educational programming, Gaia's Guides, expresses the many diverse ways youth can steward the environment.
