Spread the Harvest
Spread the Harvest seeks to reduce financial barriers to food gardening by providing residents with free gardening resources, including:
Seeds and fertilizer - available year-round
Transplants and compost - available twice per year at Resource Giveaway Days

We accept applications for Spread the Harvest from:
Low-income Indigenous gardeners
School garden representatives who wish to share Indigenous agricultural history and practices
Community gardeners and service providers that work with and provide food to low community members at risk
In exchange for receiving free resources, participants agree to track the amount of food they harvest and share.
Four times per year—in January, April, July, and October—Grow Local staff survey gardeners by email or phone to see how their garden is growing.
Participants who do not answer three consecutive surveys are removed from the program.
