The Just Garden Project builds a just food system and a culture of gardening for all people. We do this by building gardens, educating gardeners, celebrating our community and engaging youth in our work. Through our programs we work to simultaneously end hunger and food related health issues by nurturing a culture of gardening for the generations to come.

Stephanie Seliga-Soulseed’s people are Irish, English, German, French, Scottish, Dutch and Nez Perce. Her passion for food justice is rooted in a vision for powerful social change. Since 2006, she has been building food gardens for families with low incomes. As the founder and program manager of the Just Garden Project, she feels blessed to be doing the work she believe in—building a community food system that really works for everyone.
She lives, plays and gardens in Seattle’s Rainier Valley with her husband, Michael Seliga-Soulseed. They are welcoming their first child into the world this February and are learning to walk as parents.
Wendi Jiang is an AmeriCorps volunteer who started working with the Just Garden Project in October 2012. She received her college degree in Agroecology from North Carolina State University this past May, and after a brief stint teaching English in Nicaragua, decided to venture out to the Pacific Northwest.
Her passion for food security and social justice brought her to the Just Garden Project where she works to build food gardens for families with low incomes. Outside of work, she spends time romping around Seattle and learning how to garden in the PNW.
