Grow & Give
Published on December 15, 2020
The Grow & Give program is up and running for the growing season! This is a voluntary program sponsored by CSU Extension and is open to anyone who wants to participate.
If you were able to grow more veggies than you can eat within your household, you can donate them through the Grow & Give program. You can register your home or community garden and start reporting your produce donations on the Grow & Give website. The website has 2 sides – a GROW side with information on how to grow vegetables and a GIVE side to help you know where to donate locally and which has the link to the reporting system where you can report your past and future donations.
The goal of this program is to gather data statewide of how much produce people are growing for donation to neighbors, local food banks, shelters, etc. So far there are over 500 home and community gardens participating across the state and more than 3000 pounds of produce donated! If you’d like to join in on this amazing effort, there are lots of resources available to you through the Grow & Give website.
