Our main goal is to help people get started growing their own produce at home! We also strive to support local community gardening and harvesting groups.
At the moment our program prioritises households who are experiencing food insecurity due to the COVID crisis, but anyone is eligible to join our waitlist for services, as we will expand the program in the next few weeks.
Some of the services we offer:
Our main product is a garden starter kit.
Full family kit includes containers, compost, seedlings, potato bags and some pest control. Ideally this will supplement a family's produce for about 10 weeks in the summer.
Smaller kits include are available for small households.
We also have kid friendly supplies if you want to involve your little ones.
We offer indoor and windowsill options for anyone without garden space.
We allow our users to choose specific plants based on what they enjoy eating.
We can supplement a garden starter kit with items from our donation drives, including:
seedlings and plug plants
pots, planters, other containers
Harvest @ Home users will have access to a variety of amazing resources, including guide showing growth stages of seeds, tips for beginners, troubleshooting pests and other plant problems, and guides for preserving your harvest. Most of these guides are shared on our Facebook page:
