Welcome to Katie's Krops

Katie's Krops....Growing a dream!

IMG_0041.JPGThe idea for Katie’s Krops began with a 9-year-old girl and a 40 pound cabbage.  In 2008 Katie brought home a tiny cabbage seedling from school as part of the Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program.  She tended to her cabbage and cared for it until it grew to an amazing 40 pounds. Knowing her cabbage was special she donated to a soup kitchen where it helped to feed over 275 people.  Moved by the experience of seeing how many people could benefit from the donation of fresh produce to soup kitchens, Katie decided to start vegetable gardens and donate the harvest to help feed people in need.

Katie's Krops now has 100 gardens growing across the country and has donated thousands and thousands of pounds of fresh produce to people in need.  The mission of Katie's Krops is to empower youth to start and maintain vegetable gardens of all sizes and donate the harvest to help feed people in need, as well as to assist and inspire others to do the same. The problem of hunger is real, Katie's Krops mission is simple, we all can help because...

It only takes a seedling!
