Board of Directors

DCGP is currently accepting new board members!

You do not have to be a gardener!

We are looking for folks who have a vested interest in the food system of Duluth, a professional skill set, and a network in the Duluth Community. Support for our mission and organization can come in many forms — marketing, accounting, human resources, fundraising, law, or other areas of professional expertise to assist a growing non-profit are especially desired at this time.

To learn more, or attend a meeting, please contact:
