How we discover ways of helping our community grow vegetables.

We feel that helping our community is one of the most important things we do.  Employing folks in our area is so satisfying to us but in addition, we love helping others garden whenever we can.  Working with many social groups in the area, we donate plants as well as seeds to the elderly, community gardens, the prison garden and schools all over the area.  Many non-profit companies work with us to get plants to folks that need them and it is a joy every time we hear about their success in growing and the experiences of school age children learning to garden.

The elderly especially need help to garden as it can be very hard for them to find a strong back to dig their plot or to get anywhere to find plants.  We have a great group we work with that delivers our plants to the elderly in the community and they get such joy from working with the garden each day.

 

If we can help you find a way to help your community garden, let us know!
