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

 
 

Grow And Share Ramping up for 2011

So excited about planting in January!! It will be here before I know it. Some really high quality soil will be here soon.

Couple of things for those of you interested in helping:

- MLK Day Of Service we're building a school garden in Franklinton NC and could use some help (and lumber!)

- We have Gardener's Calendars for 2011 that tell you what can be planted in each month. Donate and we'll send you one. :-)

Look forward to growing food with you all in 2011!
 
 

Franklin County School Gardens: First Installation scheduled!

Grow And Share is working with several Franklin County schools, providing supplies and assistance to install school gardens. The students and teachers will then tend the gardens in the Spring, eat their harvest, and share a portion of their harvest too.

We're looking forward to working with teachers and parents this coming Wednesday to install the first gardens... a series of 4 raised gardens for an elementary school.

Hopefully, following Wednesday's day-of-work we will have some photos to share!
 
 

School Garden Budget

School gardens are possible without government grants or use of US tax dollars.  A little elbow grease and some local support can get your school garden growing with little or no expense.  [Read More]
 
 

Garden soil needed for school gardens

We are working with two elementary schools putting in gardens. The gardens are expected to be installed during October, barring no delays. One is needed at the start of October to fit with the teacher's lesson plans. We have materials, tillers, labor and seeds/plants we need.

We are seeking donations of garden soil -- preferrably organic garden soil -- for approximately 130 square feet (two areas at each of the two elementary schools). If your company or organization can donate this soil, please contact Kay at 919.269.5414 (Grow And Share).
