Welcome to Grow a Row in NoVA

Grow a Row is a community-wide effort to grow fresh produce to donate. We have two chapters:

FC (Falls Church/Fairfax County/Fairfax City) and PW (Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park).

Participating is easy:

  1. Dedicate a row of your garden or a container to growing food to donate. We can give you seeds and a soil test kit and gardening support from our  mentors.

  2. Take your donation to a Falls Church/Fairfax County location or a Prince William location that accepts fresh produce -- or use a drop-off site or courier.

  3. Tell us what you donated and how much. The easiest ways are by using this form or by signing up on the Fresh Food Connect app on your phone or tablet.


Don't have a green thumb?

We love to help new gardeners! But if hands in the soil isn't your thing, we also need volunteers to get produce from gardens to pantries, to deliver seeds and plants, and to assist with operations. Learn more here.

We [gardeners] have knowledge that can improve our communities exponentially.”
