Green Urban Initiative (GUI) is a grass-roots nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering sustainable living in Harrisburg - our home.

Our community vegatable gardening program assists individuals, families, community groups, churches, businesses - or anyone else who's interested - in putting fresh, affordable, nutritious food on the table by establishing a network of gardens throughout our beloved city.

GUI assists in garden planning and installation, with gardeners taking on maintenance and caretaking responsibility after garden creation.

GUI provides lumber, screws, soil, seeds, and gardening tips.

We'll supply the materials and know-how if you supply the enthusiasm and commitment!

GUI currently supports these gardens in Harrisburg. There are over 50 plots currently being gardened!
