Growing To Support Community

HarvestShare is an initiative that asks gardeners to grow a little more in their gardens and donate the extra produce to community resources dedicated to reducing food insecurity.

We are an all-volunteer collective consisting of backyard and community gardeners, collection site managers and drivers, community and county organizations. We believe that by pooling small individual donations, together we can have a big impact in our communities.

Growers and donors are asked to drop their surplus produce off at designated collection sites where volunteer drivers will pick it up for distribution to food assistance providers throughout the county.

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.

Produce collection will run from July through October.
