What is Plant It Forward?

In partnership with the Gardens on Spring Creek, the Food Bank for Larimer County launched “Plant It Forward” in 2011. Plant It Forward is an effort to increase local produce donations from backyard gardeners.

All community members are invited and challenged to plant an extra row in their garden! When your crop is ready, drop it off at either the Food Bank for Larimer County or the Gardens on Spring Creek. No donation is too small!

In 2020, local gardeners donated more than 47,000 pounds of fresh produce.

For more information, please email Justin Vann, Food Resource Manager, or call 970-530-3111.
