It’s harvest season!
Have extra produce? Donate it to Grow to Show, a partnership program that provides fresh, organic produce to qualified Summit County residents. Three steps to donate:
- On Mondays ONLY, bring your freshly-harvested produce to the Breckenridge Community Garden (next to Colorado Mountain College at 107 Denison Placer Rd. in Breckenridge) or Nancy’s Community Garden (behind the Senior Center at 83 Nancy’s Place in Frisco).
- Look for the cooler next to the shed.
- Bag and tag your produce according to the instructions in the cooler. Bags and tags are provided!
Grow to Share (GTS) provides healthy, fresh produce and nutritional education to qualifying Summit County residents.
GTS is a formal program of the High Country Conservation Center and offers the community gardeners a way to minimize food waste or surplus while supporting local families. All surplus produce is donated to Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) and to the Family & Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC). Produce and nutritional education are offered directly to clients during home visits and office appointments.
The Grow to Share program is successful through the partnership of the following organizations:
- High Country Conservation Center
- Summit County Women, Infants, Children (WIC)
- Family & Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC)
- Summit County Public Health
- Physical Activity and Nutrition Team of Summit (PANTS)
- Colorado Mountain College
