Grow Food ~ Be Part of a Sustainable Urban Agricultural System
What is the Grow It Forward Garden Blitz? The Grow It Forward Garden Blitz empowers residents to grow food and be part of a sustainable urban agricultural system. We provide a comprehensive approach to urban agriculture by selling and installing raised bed gardens at a low cost and by providing education and mentorship for gardeners. The garden boxes are installed over the course of one weekend by our team of volunteers. In addition to their garden boxes, new gardeners have a variety of educational opportunities, including our mentor program, which matches experienced gardeners with new growers
Where are gardens installed? Gardens can be installed in backyards, front yards, schools, libraries,
community centers, social agencies, food pantries, shelters, and senior
living centers WITHIN THE CITY OF MANITOWOC ONLY.
Purchase a garden: For $175, customers receive an 8’ x
4’ and 10” high garden box ($90 for a 4’ x 4’ x 10”), including delivery, installation, and soil.
Boxes can be purchased for homes, schools, churches, or businesses.
The garden boxes are installed over the course of one weekend (May
14-17, 2020 ).
