Growing to Give is a student lead greenhouse project that helps fight food insecurity in the Ames area.

Starting Fall 2020 student will grow familiar, nutrient dense crops in the Forestry Greenhouse, managed by volunteers. All produce will be properly harvested, prepared for storage, and delivered to Food at First to be distributed to those in need. Fresh produce donations leave a massive gap in the winter at food pantries, many Ames residents struggle to afford nutritious food options. We hope by utilizing campus greenhouses we can help fill in this gap.

Future updates on the project can be found here.


No volunteers needed at this time
