About Us

The  NaturaGrow®  Garden Club was started in December 2014 by five members of SHUMEI AMERICA.  After watching Shumei introduce the Natural Agriculture gardening to over 2,000 women farmers in Zambia, we thought that it would be useful to also introduce Natural Agriculture to people who want to grow healthy vegetables and fruit in their own back yards!

With the relocation of two key Founders to Oregon State, the Founders decided to move the club under the umbrella of YOUTH PUBLICATIONS, INC., a charitable non-profit organization headed by Annie Pierce, one of NaturaGrow's Founders.  This decision made it possible to keep the Club close to many of the current members, as well as Shumei America, and the Hollywood Center.

Mission Statement

NaturaGrow®'s Mission is to teach and inspire people to share the growing, eating, and health benefits of Natural Agriculture food products throughout the United States and beyond.  We serve and educate individual gardeners, schools, businesses, and organizations about the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical connection of all things with Mother Nature, utilizing Natural Agriculture gardening and edible garden landscaping as a catalyst.

Natural Agriculture = NO CO$T GARDENING!

Ready to TEACH!

Annie Pierce and Marina Montgomery
get help from the L.A. Junior League Volunteers

Since November 2022 Annie Pierce and Marina Montgomery have been volunteering at the Augustus Hawkins Nature Park located at the corner of Slauson and Compton Avenue in Los Angeles.   The goal was to revitalize the abandoned Citrus Orchard and Garden Area located in the park, so that Gardening Classes could again be available to the community.

The L.A. Junior League has stepped up to help in the process, and in addition to the physical assistance they offered, they also decided to donate over $13,000 to Youth Publications for the NaturaGrow Project to purchase the necessary tools, native trees, and repair of the existing raised beds, and burned area in the garden!  We are in TOTAL GRATIUDE for their generous assistance with this project! 

Now, all that is necessary are DONATIONS for the Gardening Classes, and we will be able to start sharing Natural Agriculture Gardening methods, as well as potting soil preparation for growing food at home, Seed Sprouting, Nutrition, Raw and Cooked Healthy Food Preparation, and more FREE classes throughout the year, starting in Spring 2023! 


Ultimately, we would like NaturaGrow to offer free Gardening Classes in other parks throughout the City and County of Los Angeles, teaching children, youth, and adults about the health and wealth benefits of growing food using Natural Agriculture methods.  But we need DONATIONS to be able to carry out that vision!
