About Grow a Row FC
Grow a Row FC started in May 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting and economic crisis. Between June and October of 2020, gardeners in Fairfax County, Falls Church city and Fairfax city donated more than 2000 pounds of fresh produce through Grow a Row FC.
Many thanks to Adria Bordas, senior extension agent, and Virginia Cooperative Extension for supporting this effort with seeds and advice; also to Carly Aubrey, Diane Charles, Letty Hardi, Stephani Keen, Ross Litkenhous, Cory Suter, Sandy Tarpinian and Kate Walker for their support, ideas and seed donations. Huge thanks to Sean Cunniffe for designing the logo.
Grow a Row FC is coordinated by Stacey Evers, a member of the Falls Church Environmental Sustainability Council and the Fairfax Food Council, where she co-chairs the Urban Ag Work Group. She's taught environmental education at Belvedere ES in Fairfax County for nine years.
