Support Growing to Give
– Veggies for neighbors in need –
We need your support to expand our reach.
For the 2020 growing season, we plan to increase our use of climate-friendly farming practices while expanding the area under vegetable production by more than 30%, thanks largely to a generous grant from the Windover Foundation! This means, going forward, we should be able to annually grow and donate more than 20,000 lbs. of organic vegetables, but sustaining this additional production will involve additional ongoing operating expenses, so we hope you’ll be able help us with a donation!

Tour the farm with Steve Minich from WMTW.
Steve Minich of Channel 8 in Portland (WMTW) honored Growing to Give as a “group” Community Champion on Friday, July 26, 2019! (Note: The lead-in is missing from the video: “It’s an organization out of Brunswick – called Growing to Give…”)
We welcome children to Growing to Give.
We welcome local children and school groups (ages 3+) to the farm to learn about local solutions to food insecurity, healthy food, and climate-friendly farming through our Growing, Giving, and Learning Project. On October 31, 2019, the Brunswick Times Record wrote this article 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.
