Grow Monrovia is a local non-profit organization passionate about building community around growing food gardens, planting native trees, and developing climate appropriate landscape here where we live. We started in 2019, volunteering our time and energy collaborating together on a number of projects, including the planting of over 500 California Live Oak and Sycamores throughout our neighborhood, developing the One Earth Community Garden on the grounds of the Maryknoll Sisters facility, and working together with Maryknoll to secure a sizeable turf replacement incentive payment resulting in a beautiful and vibrant meadow.

We initiated our own turf removal initiative earlier this year, building a team of dedicated Grow Monrovia volunteers, in cooperation with local contractors and vendors, to expand our impact across the neighborhoods in which we live. Our primary model is based on the sheet mulching technique, utilizing recycled materials where appropriate, and using exclusively native California plants for landscaping purposes, (with exception for fruit trees or vegetables, etc.) We like building Hügelkultur mounds and swales, developing native wildflower meadows, and supporting climate recovery through planting native trees.
