Grow and Share Music Festival
The Grow and Share Music Festival is the main annual fundraiser for Grow And Share. Band and sponsor information are in our latest newsletter within the link above.
Funds raised from this event will help Grow And Share fight hunger through the rest of 2012 when we plan more gardens, grow more plants to give away in Fall, create educational materials, and hold educational classes for children and adults! The more funding we raise, the more Sharing Gardens™ and Neighborhood Gardens™ our gardeners (YOU) will be able to grow, the more new gardeners can learn about healthy foods, and the more food our gardeners will distribute through their neighborhoods to those in need.
Grow And Share is a non-profit fighting hunger from the ground up™ through gardening education, garden and community building. We work to grow interest in gardening for home use, and grow interest–and passion–in creation of Shared Gardens(TM) and Community Gardens in neighborhoods throughout the US.
We believe that US residents can feed themselves and those around them; they all will benefit from the sharing. What we have to gain is full American tummies, smaller carbon footprints, safer local food, self reliant homes, pride, stronger communities, healthier bodies, and better quality of life!
Combating hunger throughout the US is critical during these economic times, and crucial to our future food supply. We are here to encourage US residents to take the time to:
- grow some of their own healthy food
- become more self reliant
- share their harvest with their community
- fight hunger by shared food reaching those who need it
We help with supplies to allow more gardeners to bring their gardens to life. We help them to make a difference in their communities. We educate children and adults in the community and assist them as they make changes, grow, and share. The gardeners, their families, and those in need eat healthy fresh foods.
