Vegetables produced by A Lot to Grow, Inc. are nurtured in chemical free raised beds, using low impact and sustainable gardening practices. We are a volunteer driven initiative, supported by neighbors and public and private organizations in Essex County, New Jersey.
Consultation with representatives from local food pantries, soup kitchens, and non-profit senior citizen community homes is used to determine which vegetables and herbs are grown in our gardens.
A synergy between A Lot to Grow, Inc. and other 501 (c) 3 health related organizations has developed since 2009. The garden sites are maintained by individual volunteers, school groups, churches, and civic groups. Persons of all ages and ethnic origin are welcome to join us.
We encourage positive dialogue on the subjects of food, healthy lifestyle, and community.
