In 2014, Small Axe Peppers was launched with the mission of supporting community gardens in urban areas. The company was founded in collaboration with the nonprofit organizations GrowNYC, local community gardens, and Bronx Green-Up, a public outreach program of the new York Botanical garden. Small axe annually donates thousands of Serrano pepper seedlings to more than 40 community gardens in the Bronx.
GrowNYC donates and distributes small axe Serrano pepper seedlings to participating community gardens and urban farms each spring. At the end of the season, Small Axe Peppers buys fully grown peppers, which are the key to the hot sauce.
