Grow for You, Grow to Share
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.
Thanks to the generous support of all our partners, HC3 quadrupled the amount of food grown at the Dillon Valley Garden in 2020!

How to Donate
During the summer growing season, community and home gardeners are encouraged to donate their extra produce. It’s quick and simple, and produce drop-off locations are available throughout the county.
- 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.
During the summer growing season, this page will be updated with detailed pick-up days and times.
