The Plant a Row Campaign is a national service project started by the Garden Writers Association Foundation in 1995, encouraging gardeners to grow a little extra and donate it to local food agencies. All we need is willing gardeners with space to grow, a little organization at the end to get the harvest weighed and logged, and boom!...the food is ready to get into the bellies of our neighbors in need!
Once your food is ready to be harvested, you will get hooked back up with our Gleam Team, who will help coordinate getting that food quickly to homes right here in Fort Collins. We have already started connecting with foster care programs to get this fresh food into the homes of foster families.
Last year The Growing Project had food growing all up and down the Front Range for the Plant a Row Campaign. This year, we want to do it again, and this is the perfect opportunity to get it started! But time is of the essence...these starts need to be in the ground over the next couple days, so if you're interested, please contact our co-director Chad Shavor at (970) 556-1065.
Grow on! :-)
