Where We Began

In 2011, legendary architect and civic organizer Ron Morgan founded 100 Gardens as a humanitarian effort to feed the victims of the devastating 2010 Haiti earthquake. Ron designed and installed aquaponics gardens for the people of Haiti, providing them with a sustainable way to feed themselves. Since then, 100 Gardens has evolved into a multi-faceted educational program focused on sustainable food source solutions using aquaponics.

A New Way of Thinking

100 Gardens is dedicated to changing the way people think. Our aquaponics programs inspire a new way of thinking about how we grow the food we eat. We strive to educate people about how we impact our environments every day. Through aquaponics education, each one of us has the ability to ensure the sustainability of the human population and the planet we depend on.
Our Mission

100 Gardens provides experiential and engaged learning opportunities by creating comprehensive aquaponics programs in schools and institutions serving in diverse communities.

Our Vision

A sustainable, interdependent, and food-sufficient community built upon more informed, healthier, and compassionate human beings.

The Impact Building 100 Gardens Can Have

Since the beginning, our goal has been to have an everlasting impact on students, communities and the planet. By building 100 gardens, we would have the ability to educate thousands of students each year, provide significant support for communities in need, and ultimately have a major positive imprint on our planet.

People

Educating students to practice an environmentally conscious, healthy and overall more compassionate way of living. Our hands-on approach continues to prove to be a more impactful experience for all who participate in our programs.

Planet

Aquaponics allows us to treat our planet better. Aquaponics conserves and recycles water, ensuring a more sustainable growing process. By farming fish, major pressures are taken off our oceanic ecosystems. The growth of fresh vegetables provides a nutrient-dense food source for a rapidly growing population. 

Communities

Through the harvesting of fish and vegetables, we are able to give back to communities in need. We provide these communities with sustainable food options that will ultimately lead to a healthier population. Because aquaponics is so cost-effective, financial burdens are taken off of communities.
