Garden Month!

Garden Month encourages planting, growing and spending time creating a beautiful, healthy and productive garden.

Gardening and growing plants is a great way to encourage relaxation, cooperation and a sense of achievement for one’s self.

Here are some ways to celebrate Garden Month:

Plant A Row For The Hungry
The Food Bank is encouraging local gardeners like yourself to plant a row of crops for the hungry this year. Why not team up with a friend or a neighborhood group. Your gardening skills and fresh vegetables can make a difference!

The Plant A Row for the Hungry campaign was launched nationally in 1995 by the Garden Writers Association of America. Participation is easy! Local gardeners and farmers literally plan one extra row of fruits or veggies in their gardens and donate surplus produce from that extra row directly to the Food Bank.

Volunteer with our Community Garden
The Fredericksburg Area Food Bank community garden , along with 5 other gardens, provides fresh, healthy vegetables throughout the growing season, increasing the quantity and nutrition of food provided to families in need. The Community Garden program provides a local supply of healthy produce throughout the growing season. Learn More >>
