Want to spend some time with great people in a beautiful setting, working with rich soil and healthy plants, in service to neighbors in need?

We would love your help with Growing to Give tasks:

  • transplanting seedlings
  • weeding
  • mulching
  • and more!

No prior experience is necessary and we promise you won’t be asked to use any heavy equipment.

Help build our community and get the word out

If you want to help, but being in the garden isn’t your thing, we also could use help with:

  • office tasks
  • data entry
  • fundraising
  • and more

Some of which would need to be done on the farm, but some of which could be done from your home.

We are a family-friendly farm and encourage you to bring your children when you volunteer.

Mission Statement

At Growing to Give, we grow organic vegetables using climate-friendly methods and donate them to local people facing food insecurity through our partner food pantries.

Description

Nearly 16% of Mainers, roughly 200,000 people, are food insecure according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Maine ranks last in New England and 41st nationally for food security. With so many of our neighbors going hungry every day, and with the cost of high-quality food out of reach for many, Growing to Give was born through the work and passion of several like-minded friends and neighbors. It was formed as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the spring of 2017 with a mission to grow organic vegetables using climate-friendly methods and feed our food insecure neighbors.
