Who we are
Growing To Support Community
Our all-volunteer organization asks MoCo residential and community food gardeners to grow a little more in their gardens and donate the surplus produce to local food pantries. We also support several grow-to-donate gardens where all produce is given to those in need.
We also support food gardeners with online gardening talks on timely topics and provide individuals and community groups with no cost seedlings at the start of the growing season. Our outreach program, Growing Healthy Futures, provides selected vulnerable populations with the gardening education and growing materials needed to produce some of their own food.
HarvestShare believes that we as a community of gardeners can make a valuable contribution to reducing food insecurity in our county, bringing fresh, nutritious food to our neighbors in need.
How it Works
Gardeners with extra produce can drop food off at a number of sites listed on our website. Our goal is to keep the time between harvest, drop off and redistribution to within 24 hours, keeping the fruits and vegetables amazingly fresh.
Produce collection runs from July through October.

How to Get Involved
Neighborhoods, community gardens, places of worship, clubs and organizations are encouraged to set up their own collection sites and schedules and HarvestShare will link them with a local organization for distribution to those in need.
Monetary donations keep our program running and support community outreach programs that teach low-income residents how to grow some of their own food, sharing the growing and educational materials needed to do so. All donations are tax deductible.
