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.
