The North Bay and Area Community Garden Coalition is responsible for the Grow a Row program in the North Bay area. We rely on the dedication and involvement of community members who are interested in growing food in their personal or business/organization’s gardens and donating extra grown food to emergency food programs in the area.
What is Grow a Row?
- Grow a Row is a program run in many communities across Canada. It promotes edible landscapes in urban areas while teaching community members about how food grows. It also works to bridge the gap between those growing food, and those who have limited access to fresh produce. Participants are encouraged to Grow a Row of vegetables, herbs, or fruit in their backyard gardens, containers or planter boxes and share the harvest with our neighbours in need by donating the produce to local food banks and meal programs.
