Support Growing Together
Sustainable food systems are an important part of being a UNESCO biosphere. A key factor in sustainable food systems is knowledge sharing and building capacity for people to grow their own food.
Growing Together is one way the GBBR aims to increase food sustainability in the region. By working with area organizations and plant nurseries, the program provides ‘ready-to-grow’ vegetable planters to families, seniors, people without garden space, and others. It encourages our community to think about growing more of its own food and supports people learning to garden. Learn more.
The number of veggie planters available depends on donations and funding that is received from May to July. Every donation makes a difference, thank you!Donate to Growing Together
