GROW AND DONATE
GROW - HARVEST - DONATE
Are you a gardener? Grow an extra row of produce in your garden and donate a fresh harvest to one of the many local food banks across Halton.
Simply earmark some of your home grown harvest; make sure it is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Wash it, bunch it and put it in clean bags.
Donate directly to one of our community partners listed below.
HOW IT WORKS
Make sure that your home grown produce is free from chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We support and promote urban agriculture that uses sustainable and organic practices.
The morning of your harvest be sure to wash your produce thoroughly removing all dirt, debris, bruised or damaged bits and any stray bugs you find. Ensure your produce is dry (especially if it is lettuce) before bagging it. Salad spinners are wonderful things! Bundle produce such as root veggies and herbs using twine or elastics and place all your produce in clean labelled bags with the name of the crop and the date it was harvested.
Bring your harvest to one of our community gardens or donate it directly to one of the food banks listed below.
When you arrive you’ll be greeted by a volunteer, or staff member who will take in your produce, write down where it came from, weight it and thank you for all your amazing work! We’ll send you cosmic high fives and lots of Thank Yous as you’ll be helping to feed hundreds of families across Halton.
