We fight food insecurity in our community by helping backyard and community growers to grow more and collecting this extra produce to share with those in need.
Here are some of the ways you can help:
Help weed, plant, water and harvest in a HarvestShare garden
Help grow to donate in a HarvestShare garden. Tasks vary based on the time of year but include weeding (always), planting, watering and harvesting. Learn from other gardeners while you fight food insecurity.
Start seeds/Donate seedlings
Start plants to share with growers. We’ll provide the seeds, you get them started! The plants you cultivate will be distributed to gardeners around the county who will in turn donate the produce to food assistance providers through HarvestShare.
Plant an extra row in your garden and share the surplus produce with those in need.
Coordinate a collection site
Organize a drop-off site in the county. Identify neighbors or friends that have backyard gardens and combine donations or coordinate growers in your garden club or community garden. Not a gardener? No problem! We accept fresh store-bought produce as well. Select a time and date to pool harvests or purchases and deliver your bounty to a designated food assistance provider near you. We can also pair you with a volunteer to handle the driving.
Deliver produce to food assistance providers
Want to make great connections in your community? Become a HarvestShare driver and deliver produce from collection sites to nearby food assistance providers.
