The Vangardeners are a collective that aims to reduce food waste, increase green space, and to help people exercise autonomy over their food production and consumption. Since its inception in June of 2019, some projects undertaken by the Vangardeners have been guerrilla gardening, seed bomb making parties, gleaning, and feeding the community. Some projects the Vangardeners plan to undertake in the future are mass tree planting, community education, and the distribution of seeds. The Vangardeners believe in the power of ecological direct action, that organizing should be fun, and food should be free! Find us on Facebook at or contact us at
