Community Food Initiatives hosts garden giveaways every year as part of their mission to increase regional food security by supporting equitable access to healthy, locally grown food. Recipients are invited to participate in CFI’s Grow-a-Row project, which promotes sharing a portion of your harvest with the Donation Station or a neighbor.  

The plant start giveaway is supported in part by Jackson Area Ministries, an organization based in Jackson, OH, that coordinates a large donation of tomato plant starts.  Other generous donors and supporters include the OHIO Student Farm, Companion Plants, community gardeners, and Athens City Schools.  CFI will provide planting instructions at the giveaway.
