Grow a Row

Did you know 1 in 10 people in the Upper Valley have unreliable access to healthy food?

As you plan your garden, consider planting extra veggies for your neighbors in need!

How to Grow-a-row for Willing Hands:

1.) Plant an extra row or an additional few vegetable plants in your garden and donate the extra produce harvest:

Suggested crops include Beets, Carrots, Cabbages, Onions, Peppers and Winter Squash. These are popular with our recipients and stay fresh longer than other highly-perishable crops. But we will accept any vegetables!!

2.) At harvest time, bring your clean fresh-picked produce to:

Willing Hands, 198 Church Street, Norwich, VT. Click here for map.

(Hours: Mon-Fri 8am-3pm or by special arrangement.  We also have a cooler by the front door that we check frequently during the summer, and donated produce can be placed there after hours.)

3.) Leave the produce at Willing Hands and give us your contact information (there will be a form at the donation spot), so we can thank you for your “Grow a Row” contribution!

Feel proud that your fresh food will go out on our delivery truck to help nourish neighbors in need through our 60+ partner organizations (see the list of recipients here).  Thank you!
