Our vision & mission
for a happier healthier world

The Million Gardens Movement is a community of gardeners who want to inspire a happier, healthier world by educating people about a better diet, through funding and educating millions of new gardeners to grow their own food.

In the wake of the Covid Pandemic, Frank Giustra’s Modern Farmer and Kimbal Musk’s Big Green joined forces to present The Million Gardens Movement — a joint charitable project that’s dedicated to mobilizing a million people to grow their own food and reap the benefits of gardening. Whether it’s in a community garden, on a fire escape, or along with a window box, it’s small collective acts like these that will sow the biggest seeds of change.

The Million Gardens Movement will make it possible for any family, no matter where they live or what resources they have, to grow their own healthy food. We’ll provide the families that need it most with a beginner-friendly garden kit, creating healthy eating habit in the home and increasing families’ ability to choose, grow, prepare, and eat healthy food.

We want every family in America to be connected to a regular source of fresh fruit & vegetables through gardening

A message from

our founders

I believe everyone has a stake in the food chain. Every day we all take decisions—what we grow, what we buy, what we eat—that directly shape our land and our society. We are all, in different ways, stewards of the land and each other. In other words: We are all modern farmers now. And I hope the Million Gardens Movement can bring together people who share this belief, so we can grow something great together. We want to build a community of gardeners – whether you tend an acre or have alone pot on your fire escape. We want to create a place where you can learn how to garden better, encourage those planting their first seeds, share your triumphs and troubles, and most importantly help each other and help others.

Modern Farmer

The Million Gardens Movement is about reconnecting us to our roots, to real food, and to a path to a sustainable, healthy lifestyle. I want to inspire families across America — and the globe — to experience the magic of growing your own food. For ten years, Big Green has been connecting kids and families to real food through our school-based programs. By combining forces with like-minded organizations like Modern Farmer, companies, and advocates, families from all walks of life will get more connected and excited about real food — the food they can trust to nourish their bodies and the planet. We can all have an incredible impact on the health and happiness of current and future generations by gardening more at home, school, and in our community.
