Grow & Give 2011

Growing your own food is an easy and inexpensive way to provide nutritious, fresh, local food to those in need.

The ICA Food Shelf and Tonkadale Greenhouse are partnering this spring for the third annual Grow & Give produce fundraiser.

Growing your own food is an easy and inexpensive way to provide nutritious, fresh, local food to those in need. First-time vegetable gardeners have an opportunity to try something new and experience the great rewards of growing your own food and giving back to the community. Last year, the community raised almost 5,000 pounds of fresh produce for the ICA Food Shelf!

How it works:

Tonkadale supplies the vegetables.

You raise the veggies in your own backyard or garden plot.

We all give back to the community by supplying those in need with fresh produce.

Seed pick-up is on May 18 or 19 from 6-8 p.m.  You plant one of each: pepper, tomato, squash and cucumber. When it’s time to harvest, you can drop off your produce at Tonkadale. You’re also rewarded with Tonkadale loyalty points for each donation.

To sign up, call 952.938.6480 or email mary@tonkadale.com. Happy gardening!
