Our Mission

Independence Gardens helps people create better relationships with their natural and built environments.

Our Vision

Growing food connects people to the land and to each other, and makes “home” a better place to be. In the future we envision, all our neighbors possess the skills and habits to grow and use healthy food and the resources to manage their land in a good way, enhancing their own sense of well-being, as well as opportunities for wildlife and future generations of humans to prosper there.

Our Story

In 2009, owners Karen Wolfgang and Isabel LaCourse recognized an opportunity to make a positive impact in their hometown by helping people grow their own food. Since its inception, Independence Gardens has found new ways to further its mission and vision, growing its operations in response to emerging needs. Independence Gardens is a certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE) and Emerging Small Business (ESB), and we are a versatile professional partner, helping our clients improve their landscapes (and their lives!) by growing food.
