‘Plant A Row’ encourages gardeners to help those facing food insecurity

Published on

During the pandemic and beyond, more Granite staters are facing food insecurity. Most significantly, access to fresh and healthy, local produce.

Plant A Row is a neighbors-helping-neighbors initiative, organized through 4-H and UNH Cooperative Extension in Strafford and Rockingham County.

The idea behind this initiative is simple: Planting an extra row in your garden bed or an extra container and donating the produce from it to a participating food pantry will directly benefit local food pantries and their patrons to offer more fresh and local produce and healthier choices.

When people pledge to plant an extra row, they will be provided with a garden kit (fabric garden, row marker, sticker, and colorful tote bag), growing tips, activities, recipes, and other resources.

Participation is free and open to people of all ages. Participants don’t need to be 4-H members to sign up.
