Green Wish’s Kansas City Metro-based chapter supports the following green organizations:
Kansas City Community Gardens is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of low-income households and other members of the community by helping them grow their own nutritious fruits and vegetables.
Bridging The Gap works to make the Kansas City region sustainable by connecting environment, economy and community. They educate citizens, businesses and governments about the impact their decisions have on our environment, and help them follow through with direct action to make our world, region and community green, healthy and sustainable.
The mission of the Martha Lafite Thompson Nature Sanctuary is to provide: • engaging hands-on environmental and natural science education for all ages; • biodiversity of native plants and animals through wise management of our natural resources; • understanding that all Earth's inhabitants are part of complex, interdependent ecosystems, and; • opportunities for quiet reflection and reconnection with the natural world.
The Kansas City Food Circle is a volunteer driven, membership and donation-financed organization created to promote the development of a permanently sustainable local food system. They serve the greater Kansas City area (restaurants and growers in Missouri, Kansas, and nearby communities in Nebraska and Iowa). The primary purpose is to support farmers in the region who strive to produce delicious, nourishing food while using environmentally-sound, organic methods that restore and preserve the health of the land and who treat animals humanely.
Jerusalem Farm is a Catholic intentional community built on the four cornerstones of Prayer, Community, Service and Simplicity. They strive to transform lives through service retreat experiences, sustainable living and home repair. College and high school groups are invited to spend their school breaks at the Farm. The service retreats incorporate educational discussions and hands-on work relating to social justice concerns, sustainability, and direct service with their neighbors.
