Support Our Work 

Support Growing to Give by buying a charitable CSA share. These shares work much like they do in community supported agriculture (i.e. “a CSA share”), but instead of the veggies going to customers in weekly portions they will be distributed to people with food insecurity through local food banks and pantries. The vegetables we grow are those that our partner food banks and pantries have told us their clients want more of: lettuce, tomatoes, green beans, broccoli, summer squash, winter squash, carrots, beets, spinach, onions, chard, and peppers. Buy your share today and help us help others.  

  • full-share ($400)
  • half-share ($200)
  • quarter-share ($100)     

Of course we welcome donations of any size! Thank you!

Growing to Give has received its 501(c)(3) IRS public charity status as a dba of the Center for a Green Future, so donations are  tax deductible as charitable contributions, but please check with your tax advisor for exceptions.

Checks and PayPal donations are both welcome. Checks may be made out to Growing to Give and mailed to 30 East Coxon Road, Brunswick, Maine, 04011. To donate online, please click the button below to go to a secure donation processing page on PayPal.

Volunteer

Want to spend some time with great people in a beautiful setting, working with rich soil and healthy plants, in service to neighbors in need?

We hope so, because we’re looking for both regular and once-in-a-while volunteers!

Connect with the earth

We would love your help with Growing to Give tasks:

  • transplanting seedlings
  • weeding
  • mulching
  • and more!

No prior experience is necessary and we promise you won’t be asked to use any heavy equipment.

Much of our harvesting will be done by the Merrymeeting Gleaners, the Androscoggin Gleaners, and the Cumberland Gleaning Initiative, volunteer groups that also harvest and glean at other nearby farms and farmers markets. They will be harvesting at Growing to Give on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings (once the first vegetables are ready to be picked).  

Help build our community and get the word out

If you want to help, but being in the garden isn’t your thing, we also could use help with:

  • office tasks
  • data entry
  • fundraising
  • and more

Some of which would need to be done on the farm, but some of which could be done from your home.

We are a family-friendly farm and encourage you to bring your children when you volunteer.

If you’re interested in helping, please click the button below. We’ll be in touch to see if your availability and interests match our needs, and we promise we won’t share this info with anyone else.
