Grow and Share
I began our Grow and Share Program in 2013 with the goal to create a sense of community where individuals help each other. Not for profits were allowed to farm a plot for no fee and individuals and groups paid a small fee to help cover the costs of running the project. We began each season with a meeting where introductions and reconnecting occurred. Each participant was expected to donate a portion of what they grew to the local food pantry or an organization of their choosing.
This year has been a year of transition and we look forward to scheming this fall to figure out the best way to utilize the Grow and Share to benefit the community. Stay tuned for more information.
We may have an onsite produce stand next year. We will keep you posted.
