Our Mission and Origin

Garden of Eden Urban Farming's (GOE) mission is to help you or your nonprofit organization organize a gardening enterprise and provide the highest quality organic, nutritional, and flavorful herbs, greens, tomatoes and strawberries, on the best terms possible for consumers. Providing lower transportation time and costs, less spoilage and meeting market demand efficiently all year round, GOE-affiliated gardeners supply locally grown produce for small to medium-scale wholesale and retail and wholesalers and regional non-profit organizations.

In addition, we provide full time state-of-the-art indoor farming job training, offering a transformative skills development model for under-performing young adults, veterans, and unemployed, in cooperation with other nonprofit agencies. In cooperation with local non-profits, we take unskilled young adults and low-skilled workers and give them high tech, 100% green agriculture skills training required for 21st Century food production. This can create local jobs for local residents.

Our strategy is to train young people for adulthood, and to train adult workers for new careers ready to go to work. This year-round job creation process engages us in building the skills, attitudes, knowledge, and experiences that prepare them for both the present and the future.

GOE began as a senior project by Michael Twiggs at Tacoma Evergreen State College, transitioned through various community garden projects co-sponsored by various civic groups in Seattle and Tacoma, WA, and finally into its current independent nonprofit format. We are currently working with nonprofits in central Puget Sound, with special emphasis on communities of color. We also work with commercial entities to develop nutritional, fresh, local food options. The name Garden of Eden has, of course, been adopted by other organizations due to its biblical origins.
