Support Our Work and Be Eligible to Win a Private Farm to Table Dinner!!
In 2019, we have a goal to sell 50 charitable full farm shares. 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’ve selected to grow in 2019 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. This year, all full share donations that are received prior to July 31, 2019, the donors will be eligible to win a private Farm to Table Dinner at the farm for up to 20 people!!! 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!

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!
We would love your help with Growing to Give tasks (transplanting seedlings, weeding, mulching, etc.). No prior experience is necessary, and we’ll provide all the training and support you’ll need (and you won’t be asked to use any heavy equipment).
Much of our harvesting will be done by the Merrymeeting Gleaners and the Androscoggin Gleaners, 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). 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.
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.
