Garden to Give, Share Your Produce with Hungry in Your Community

Share your love of gardening and the bountiful harvest with the hungry in your community.

Designate a row or garden bed to growing a Giving Garden and donate the harvest to your local food pantry. Feeding America reports that 41 million Americans struggle with hunger. And many are children and seniors. Gardener’s Supply Company is inviting gardeners to lend a hand, take the “Garden to Give” pledge and grow food to give to those in need.

You’ll find a simple Giving Garden plan of long keeping pantry favorites such as carrots, cabbage, kale and winter squash on their website at www.gardeners.com. These late maturing vegetables will be ready for harvest at about the same time, so you can make your donation in just one trip.

But once you’ve experienced the benefits of sharing fresh produce, you are likely to find yourself making regular donations to the pantry.

A bit more information:  Don’t let a lack of space stop you from participating.  Plant a row or container of one or more of these vegetables to share; join forces with a neighbor who may have the space, but only limited time to garden; or gather a few friends and rent a community garden plot. Together you can grow fresh produce and memories to share!
