A garden is a community of microorganisms, insects, animals, plants, and people.  All parties interact constantly, some more actively than others, to build that community.  We at Project Grow would like to encourage as much active support on the part of individuals like you, who share our passion for gardening and community-building.  Whether your gift is one of time and energy, financial support, or an in-kind donation, we thank you for being part of making this Project Grow!
