The Compass Growers – Share your Harvest

Attention all gardeners! Would you like to support the Compass this season by growing an extra row of vegetables or donating extra produce? The Compass grows food in several plots in the Hillside Community Garden that supplement our food bank operation. We are looking to you to help increase the amount of nutritious, fresh produce that we can distribute to our clients.

Whether your vegetable garden is large or small, consider adding an additional row, bed, pot or plant. If you have extra fruit or vegetables, earmark them for donation to the Compass. The more Compass Growers we have the more fresh produce we can distribute.
