New Year's Eve

Happy New Year to all of our gardeners, supporters, friends, and volunteers!

It is almost midnight.  There is still time to make a donation to help Grow And Share's educational efforts toward gardening and community building. (http://www.growandshare.org/?page_id=75)

While we are thankful for donations, we would really like to have more of you growing gardens andsharing your harvest with your neighbors!  Wherever you are in the US, you can grow a garden and share with those near you including your local food bank!  If your within an easy drive of Zebulon NC we'd love to help you start your garden with our plants, given away in April (April 30, 2011).

To sign up as a Sharing Gardener, you can fill out this online form which will notify us that you wish to grow and share with us in 2011: http://www.growandshare.org/?page_id=1434 .

Let's fight hunger in the coming year by making good, healthy produce available all over the United States of America!

PS - The New Year starts tomorrow.  We still have Gardener's Calendars for 2011 available.  Contact us to make a donation and receive our calendar as a thank you! http://www.growandshare.org/?p=1485

 
 

Supplies Needed

We are fundraising now to expand our educational offerings for schools and parents, and prepare for the Spring plantings, when we give away garden plants to US residents who sign a Pledge To Share from their garden.

We have a (chicken) Plate Sale fundraiser this upcoming weekend in Zebulon NC and are seeking help from local farmers and growers. We need the following supplies ASAP (we hope you will donate):

- chickens (150+)
- 50lbs of locally grown potatoes
- 10 to 20lbs of locally grown tomatoes
- barbecue sauce
- 10 to 20lbs of locally grown green beans

Please email if you can help. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and can provide a receipt for your donation.

Thank you!

Grow And Share is holding a fundraiser: a music festival September 6 2009. There will be music and vendors, and we will offer a limited number of free vendor booths to farmers. Farmers chosen to use the free booths must be willing to talk about farming, demonstrate how they supply food, and even provide samples. You may also sell during the event (some guidelines/limitations). Contact info [at] growandshare [dot] org for more information.
