Sunrise Project is a nonprofit organization that connects people to good food, community and the environment. We recently finished renovating and are in the process of moving into the former Sunrise Garden Center:1501 Learnard Ave. in Lawrence, which includes workshop space, a community kitchen and community garden. Currently, we implement a variety of programs throughout the community. Learn more on our program pages!
