WHAT IS JUST GROW
Just Grow is our community garden initiative. We want to help people learn how to grow their own food and provide a space for them to learn and grow. We have garden plots at our location at 1000 E. 11th Street that are leased out each year, free of charge, to people who don't have access to gardening space of their own and intend to keep an active garden in the space. Produce from the garden is directed into the pantry so our clients can enjoy healthy fresh produce. We also offer classes and activities centered around learning more about growing your own food and our native edible plants and herbs hosted by our experienced staff and professional gardeners.
WHO IS JUST GROW FOR
Our Just Grow garden plots are leased to anyone looking to grow their own food, who might not have adequate yard or growing space. We have a "use it or lose it" policy on the plots so we can provide the space to people who want to actively grow, and because these spaces also provide food for our clients. All of the Just Grow classes and activities are open to anyone who is interested! Supervised children are welcome!
