The mission of the S.A.N. is to bring awareness of the global crisis caused by climate change, energy vulnerability and economic instability to communities in the Kansas River bioregion. Green Wish specifically supports their permaculture garden initiative, planting local community gardens and donating food to surrounding neighborhoods and homeless shelters.

Community Mercantile Education Foundation (CMEF) partners with schools to educate students using school gardens. Students plant, tend, and harvest what is grown, which then goes to school cafeterias and local homeless shelters.
