Spring Planting, Fall Harvest – America’s Grow-a-Row

The Rotary eClub of Hunterdon Horizon Supports America’s Grow-a-Row with an annual Harvest.  We participated in 2013 and 2014.

Rotary Member Marie Ande and family participating in 2014 Harvest, Pittstown NJ.

America’s Grow-a-Row’s mission is to positively impact as many lives as possible through a volunteer effort of planting, picking, rescuing, and delivering free fresh produce. At America’s Grow-a-Row we:

  • Provide fresh, healthy produce to those in need
  • Educate people of all generations about hunger and ways to help
  • Introduce our youth to farming and healthy eating
  • Cultivate in tomorrow’s leaders the habit of giving back
  • Contribute to the sustainability of agriculture.

We are currently without a chair of this volunteer project. To learn more about Grow-a-Row volunteer opportunities, check out this link.  Planting and harvesting opportunities are available.  Any member is welcome to step forward and coordinate a day of volunteering!  Email horizoneclub@gmail.com, and
