Planning for the 2010 Growing Season

This year, we gave away close to 2,000 garden plants and had many pledge-signed gardeners growing food to share. They were spread across Franklin, Wake, Vance, and Durham counties... possibly a few from Nash and Johnson Counties too.

Next year, our reach will grow! We are planning two giveaways of close to 10,000 garden plants. The giveaways will be in April, allowing folks to pick them up in time to plant their Spring/Summer gardens.

So far, we have one spot for a giveaway in Franklin County near Zebulon and Bunn NC. We're looking for the right spot in Raleigh where we can hold the second giveaway. Once we have both dates and locations set, they will be announced on our site: .

Whether you are already a gardener or just think you might try it, we hope you'll keep the giveaways in mind. It is a way to get your garden growing without major investment, making it easier for more people to try.

The "catch" is that to get the free plants, you sign a pledge to share your harvest. You can share with family, friends, neighbors, strangers, or food banks; that is your choice. We do provide some distribution sites to help if you don't know where to give your harvest away.

The economy is picking up, which is great. There are still families struggling to put enough food on the table. Help us reach many communities, make lots of fresh garden food available, and spread it around. With your help, we can chase hunger away, and bring positive change to the streets of NC and eventually communities throughout the United States of America.
