There are over 40 million acres of unproductive land in residential backyards and commercial properties and over 19 million abandoned properties across the U.S. Let’s start using them! Discover available plots of land and gardeners or farmers and start growing food together.
Shared Earth connects people who have land, with people who want to garden or farm. Search listings and message with nearby gardeners or landowners to get started on your next garden!
Not only will you enjoy fresh, local food— you will make a difference in our food system, create communities and raise awareness around local food and health.
“It was just a rough patch of land when we started. Now there is a vibrant garden growing. Lauren’s mother is a gardener and she loves to garden, she just didn’t have the land for one. I love fresh fruits and vegetables, but don’t have the patience or time to tend to it. We came up with a great plan and now have a productive garden that is beautiful and lush. Thanks for everything!”
