Grow & Give

Grow Food. Share the Harvest.

CSU Extension’s Master Gardener Program established Grow & Give in 2020 as a “Modern Victory Garden Project” in response to heightened levels of food insecurity resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, Grow & Give continues to address food insecurity in Colorado by connecting backyard and community gardens to food donation sites across the state. The program provides resources to help you both ‘Grow’ and ‘Give’ part of your harvest to those in need.

Taking a Stand Against Hunger in Our Communities

In 2020, Grow & Give had almost 600 registered home and community gardens across 37 Colorado counties. As a statewide project, more than 46,500 pounds of produce were donated in local Colorado communities!
