Season Preparation – Saturday, March 28, 1:00-4:00pm

Each year our season starts well before it’s time to plant! Our season preparation readies the garden by applying compost to the garden beds, spreading wood chips in walkways, and any other activity necessary to have the garden ready for planting. There are many activities with varying degrees of physical activity. Please join us to help the 2020 season start strong! If you can help, please let us know on the Sign-up page.

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 2020

Rochester Farmers' Market Logo

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.
