The Grow to Give garden is located at the Central Park Community Garden. Volunteers help to plant, maintain and harvest seasonal organic fruits and veggies. Each harvest is delivered to Food for Life which distributes this healthy, locally grown fresh food to Halton food banks and community agencies.
Helping Local Families
BurlingtonGreen's Grow to Give donation garden program is very proud to help local families in need, while offering rewarding hands-on volunteer opportunities. Over the past five growing seasons we have been able to donate over 4600 lbs (2086 kg) of food, and we look forward to continuing this amazing community support program into the future.
A Learning Opportunity
Elementary school classes and youth groups are welcome to visit, dig in, and learn about basic growing, plant/food identification, and the importance of community giving.

Community Support Makes a Difference...
- Food for Life warehouses and distributes the harvested food.
- The City of Burlington graciously provides the garden plot and water
Sponsorship for the 2017 Grow to Give donation garden season is needed
to continue the program to match the success of past years.
Please contact Amy if your company would like to learn how it can benefit by supporting this, or any
of BG’s amazing community programs.
BurlingtonGreen graciously thanks the Ontario Trillium Foundation for supporting this and other impactful BurlingtonGreen programs.
