Brown County UW-Extension Community Gardens Program

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Harvest season is underway! Have extra fresh fruits and vegetables in your garden? Make sure your surplus garden produce doesn’t go to waste by participating in Planting for a Purpose, a joint project of the Green Bay Packers and Extension Brown County to encourage gardeners to donate fresh produce to food pantries.

Many local pantries accept fresh produce donations and have need for more donations to meet clients’ needs. Join the effort by signing up to participate at There is no minimum donation amount. Donations increased from 2017 to 2018, and you can help continue to make numbers grow! All participants can pick up a free gardening bag, while supplies last.
