Plant it Forward

Plant Now, Donate Later

Fighting hunger from the ground up

Plant It Forward, a joint effort between the Gardens on Spring Creek and the Food Bank for Larimer County (FBLC), is urging all home gardeners to fight hunger from the ground up and plant extra fruits, vegetables and herbs this spring to donate to the hungry during the harvest season.

"At this time of the year, Fort Collins gardeners can decide to help the most vulnerable in our community by planting extra in their gardens," explains Michelle Provaznik, Director, Gardens on Spring Creek. "Each member of the community can make a difference; no donation is too small."

Since 2010, community members through Plant It Forward have delivered over 50,000 pounds of fresh food to the Food Bank for Larimer County. In its fifth growing season, the Gardens and FBLC organizers have set a goal for 35,000 pounds of produce to be delivered from area gardeners this year, which usually spans May through October.

Produce donations can be brought to the Food Bank for Larimer County, located at 1301 Blue Spruce, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Gardens on Spring Creek, 2145 Centre Avenue, will be accepting donations on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.
