Garden Share

Garden Share encompasses several growing and harvesting programs that bring freshly grown food to Community Food Share:

Community Garden Donations

In collaboration with Earth’s Table, volunteers grow and harvest produce for Community Food Share. Local home gardeners also share their bounties by donating freshly picked fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

How to donate food from your garden:

Donations are accepted Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM-4:30 PM at Community Food Share: 650 S. Taylor Avenue, Louisville. Bring donations to our main lobby. We’re happy to help unload large harvests, and know that no donation is too small!

No place to plant? Join a community garden:

Hey Home Gardeners!

Do you want to help Community Food Share provide fresh, delicious produce for individuals facing food insecurity? Pledge to Grow a Row for Community Food Share in 2018! When you sign up, you’ll receive an informational starter packet with tips on organic gardening and post-harvest handling.

Gleaning

Local farms call Community Food Share when they have an abundant harvest or it’s time to plant a new crop.

Volunteer as a gleaner:

Our ability to collect and distribute this incredibly fresh produce is dependent on volunteer availability. If you are interested in helping glean food on our behalf, contact our Produce & Gleaning Volunteer Coordinator, at (303) 525-3491 or gardenshare@communityfoodshare.org. Opportunities arise at short notice, so you will be added to our “on-call” list.

Farm to Food Bank

Colorado farmers supply fresh, local agricultural products, including fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, and grains.
