This year, the Great Gloucester GrowDown has gone virtual for the safety of our awesome community. At a time when more than one in five American households is experiencing food insecurity, our mission to empower people with the resources they need to grow some of their own food is more important than ever before. The GrowDown is raising funds for our essential work putting fresh produce on families' tables through school, community, and backyard gardens.
Join us for a "party to go", featuring...
?? Three-course pick-up picnic dinners for guests to enjoy in their own homes or picnic spot of choice, prepared by the incredible chefs at Short & Main using fresh, local ingredients from North Shore producers, and featuring a take-out signature cocktail
?? A digital movie premiere exploring how we've been responding to our community's food access needs during the pandemic - meet our gardeners, learn the impact of Backyard Growers’ programs, and see how our team pivoted to provide gardening resources, tools, support, and more, in a rapidly changing global health crisis
