Clean Up Day – Sunday, March 26, 2023, 2-4 PM
The 2023 season is upon us! In preparation for the upcoming season we will be clearing out old growth and addressing any issues that have crept up during the winter months. We will also be laying down mulch in the walkways, so if you have a pitchfork, shovel, and/or wheelbarrow you could bring it would be much appreciated. Please let us know you’re coming by signing up, and we hope to see you there!
Garden Prep and Seed Planting – Saturday, April 29, 2023
The weather is starting to warm and the ground is ready! Garden preparation adds compost to the beds, confirms the water systems are working, and gets the frost tolerant crops into the ground. Come and get your hands dirty with us!
Big Planting Day – Saturday, May 20, 2023
It’s time to get all of the crops into the ground! Come and join us as we plant the majority of our crops for the season. With your help, we can get the 2023 season fully underway.
Garden Orientation – Ongoing
Our lead gardeners will be giving an orientation to the garden. If you’ve never been to the garden before, feel free to drop by and learn more about who we are, what we do, and how to help. Even something as simple as watering the plants goes a long way to help us provide food to those in need. Head over to our Sign-up page for dates and times and sign up to let us know you’re coming. We look forward to seeing you!
Rochester Farmers’ Market 2023
The Grow to Give Garden will be hosting a booth every-other week at the Rochester Farmer’s Market starting on opening day, which is usually mid-May. The initial weekend will be focused on providing information about the garden and introducing ourselves to the community. As the harvest begins to come in, the focus will transition from information sharing to selling produce for fundraising purposes. Anyone can help assist the garden and its mission by purchasing produce from our stand at the Farmers’ Market. Please feel free to stop and learn more about us.
