Together, gardeners and good food advocates pitched in to help give the White House and the Obamas a healthy kitchen garden. Now it's time for gardeners around the world to work together again on a much bigger challenge: feeding a growing population with a rapidly degrading natural resource base and in a rapidly changing global climate. There are currently over 1 billion hungry people in the world and that number is set to rise as the global population rises from 6.7 billion to over 9 billion in 2050. While we don't know yet how we will feed all these new hungry people, we do know one thing for sure: planting more kitchen gardens - behind homes, schools, and in vacant urban lots - will be part of the solution. Kitchen Gardeners International is a 501c3 nonprofit community of 18,000 people from over 100 countries who are growing some of their own food and helping others to do the same.
