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.

NaturaGrow® is Working on the
Augustus Hawkins Nature Park  
Citrus Orchard and Garden Restoration

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 NaturaGrow® can start  offering Gardening Classes  to the community.

After the restoration of the garden is complete, NaturaGrow® will need DONATIONS for the Gardening Classes, and we will be able to start sharing Natural Agriculture Gardening methods, as well as growing in pots and containers  for growing food at home, Seed Sprouting, Nutrition, Raw and Healthy Cooked Food Preparation, and more FREE classes for the community residents throughout the year! 


NaturaGrow® also plans  to build Edible Gardens and 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 your help to be able to carry out that vision!
