Grow a Row

Grow a Row and the Library will deliver to Goffstown Food NetworkThe Goffstown Network Food Pantry's Grow a Row program encourages local growers to grow an extra row of their favorite vegetables for donation to the Network Food Pantry. Any excess produce growers may have is welcome, too.

The Library supports the project as much as possible:

  • During harvests, drop off your produce at the Library when the food pantry is closed and we’ll be sure to deliver what you bring in.
  • When you're planning and planting your extra row or two of vegetables to help a family in need, visit the Library to browse our great collection of gardening books. We also have garden stakes to identify the row in your garden - stop by and pick up a few.

Please consider this worthwhile community project - it’s also a great way to get kids in the garden, learning about growing and giving!
