Local work

Sanzuma Local

No two gardens are the same: every community has different needs. 

Sanzuma customizes garden plans depending on the space, and needs of each school. Working alongside the community, we help design and plant in a way that acknowledges and respects each garden's ecology and culture, and facilitates the garden's productive longevity. 

We focus on a train the trainer method.  Once the garden or project is flourishing, we step back and take on a mentorship role.
