Growing To Support Community
What is HarvestShare?
We are an all-volunteer organization dedicated to fighting food insecurity in Montgomery County. We ask those who can to grow a little more in their gardens and donate the surplus to food assistance providers in the community through HarvestShare. Produce is dropped off at designated collection sites and then delivered to these local organizations, providing fresh produce to those in need. We believe that by pooling even small donations, together we can have a big impact.
Our Growing Healthy Futures initiative shares the planting materials and resources to help those in need grow their own healthy vegetables.
Help us fight food insecurity in Montgomery County!

HarvestShare, in collaboration with Rainbow Community Development Center (RCDC) Montgomery County Master Gardeners (MCMG) is creating and distributing grab-and-go gardening kits for food-insecure clients of RCDC. The kits consist of repurposed produce crates, potting soil, plants and seeds, and the educational materials needed to successfully plant, grow and harvest the vegetables.
