Grow & Give   arrow


Grow & Give was created to address food insecurity in Colorado by connecting backyard and community gardens to food donation sites across the state. We are here to provide resources to help you both ‘Grow’ and ‘Give’ part of your garden’s bounty to those in need. There is no minimum donation requirement. We have a wealth of information on growing produce at the State Master Gardener website, as well as a series of healthy recipes that use fresh produce which can be found on our give website.

Join us! Commit to grow and give by registering your home or community garden as part of our statewide Modern Victory Garden project. We’ll provide resources and training to make growing and donating easier.

Free Vegetable Guide

Downloadable, printable resource for backyard growers in Colorado. The Colorado Vegetable Guide is a 85-page resource with crop-by-crop information for all regions of the state.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
