Support Growing to Give
– Veggies for neighbors in need –
We need your support to expand our reach.
In 2020, we will be expanding land under production by 30%, which means we will be able to donate more healthy food to more food access sites across Cumberland, Androscoggin, and Sagadahoc Counties.

Growing to Give
Tour the farm with Steve Minich from WMTW.
We welcome children to Gorowing to Give.
We welcome local children and school groups (ages 3+) to the farm to learn about local solutions to hunger, healthy food, and climate-friendly agriculture through our Growing, Giving, and Learning Project. The Times Record recently wrote a feature on the Project.
Make a Difference in Your Community
Come spend time in a beautiful setting with great people, working with rich soil and healthy plants – all while providing a great service to neighbors in need.
As a volunteer with Growing to Give, I work with an amazing, multigenerational group of people committed to the mission that high-quality produce should be made available to everyone. We work hard while having a lot of fun!

So often, the bulk of our regular donations include produce at the end of its life; what a delight for folks to be able to have firm tomatoes and fresh root veggies that they could store for later use or preserve.

We’ve saved about $4,000 so far this year because we haven’t had to buy as much due to the great produce coming from places like Growing to Give. That’s allowed us to serve many more clients. And the produce from Growing to Give is so clean and amazing.
