The Growing Gardens Food Project is an opportunity for Growing Gardens to promote health and self-sufficiency in the community. Each year, we offer thousands of plant starts and seed packets to those in need, so that they can grow food for themselves and their families.
SEED AND PLANT START DONATION PROGRAM: This is an opportunity for low-income or need-based individuals and organizations to receive seeds and organic vegetable plant starts from Growing Gardens. We will have a variety of seed packets available as well as tomato, vegetable, herb and flower plant starts for donation at our Greenhouses. Seeds and plants are offered on a first come, first serve, basis, and once we're out, we're out.
The Boulder donation day is scheduled for MONDAY, MAY 20th 9-12pm and 4-6pm. Donations may be picked up at our Greenhouse located at 1630 Hawthorn Ave, Boulder, CO 80304.
The Longmont donation day is scheduled for WEDNESDAY, MAY 22nd 9-12pm and 4-6pm. Donations may be picked up at our Greenhouse, located at 950 Lashley street, behind the YMCA in Longmont, CO 80504. Plant and seed donations will be replenished for the Longmont donation day.
PRODUCE DONATION PROGRAM: Fresh produce grown and gleaned by Growing Gardens is donated back to the community through partnerships with service agencies. Our goal is to promote health and self-sufficiency by increasing access to healthy, fresh produce.
ORGANIZATIONS & GROUPS: If you would like to pick up seeds and plants on behalf of clients or participants served by your organization, you must complete and submit this Group Form prior to picking up your plants. Agencies and organizations who are a part of our produce donation program must also complete this form annually.
If you do not have documentation to show that 85% of your participants are low-income, your organization is not eligible to participate in the Growing Gardens Food Project.
