From the University of California Master Gardeners ..."One of our goals for this program is to encourage our neighbors who have gardens, to plant *one extra row* in their gardens, and to harvest those extra fruits and vegetables and provide them to local food pantries. Another goal is to encourage groups of people to participate in this effort together. (i.e. garden clubs, youth groups, seniors, schools, community gardens and faith organizations)

Join us and help make this effort successful. We, UC Master Gardeners, will help and support you. Our mission is to help people garden more sustainably and successfully. To make sure that happens, we are going to be liaisons to garden groups. To support you in this effort, you’ll have access to all our UC Master Gardener public talks and website resources, and garden groups will each get their own mentor. We'll support you so you can grow extra, and together we will impact hunger and food insecurity in the Bay Area. We can put you in touch with food pantries that welcome home-grown food in your area.

Here’s how you can get involved:

If you want to participate as an individual, please RSVP to UC Master Gardeners: Marvin Goodman (ravmarv@gmail.com and/or Judith Dean (deancisco@gmail.com)
If you want to organize your organization or friends to become a growing group, we’ll share with you what other groups are already doing. Please RSVP to UC Master Gardeners: Marvin Goodman (ravmarv@gmail.com and/or Judith Dean (deancisco@gmail.com)"
