It’s Harvest Season!
Grow to Share provides local produce, nutritional education, and hands-on growing experiences to qualified families in Summit County. It is possible thanks to partnership between High Country Conservation Center, Summit County Women, Infants, and Children, and the Family and Intercultural Resource Center.
How to Donate
Whether you are a home or community gardener, anyone can donate! Here’s how:
- Harvest your produce – Use appropriate tools to ensure the best-looking and longest-lasting produce.
- Bag & label – At the drop off sites, place your harvested produce into the provided bags and fill out the label. Be sure to shake off excess dirt from root veggies and avoid storing wet produce in the bags provided.
- Store for pick-up – Leave your produce in the coolers on Monday to be picked up on Tuesday morning and donated Tuesday afternoon.
Have your produce bagged, labeled, stored, and dropped off at these locations before their pick up times:
