More than 500 volunteers have helped grow the garden since it started in 2009. Volunteers include students, faculty, staff and community members. Fresh, healthy food grown is first provided to volunteers and surplus is donated to the Blazer Student Store on campus where all students can access.
The garden is funded by many people and organizations, including members of the Romero Family, Keep Irving Beautiful, North Lake College, and community members both near and far.
