Community at the Heart of Everything
Community is at the heart of everything that we do at Gaining Ground. We work together, in community, to grow nutritious and delicious produce for our community. Our community is strengthened by our shared commitment to sustainability, generosity, and equitable access to healthy food.
We are missing many in our community this growing season as the pandemic necessitated the temporary suspension of our volunteer program. It is strange to look out over the farm on any given day and not see groups of people young and old planting, weeding, and harvesting. Our volunteers bring laughter, inquisitiveness, excitement, and an overall positive energy to our work. We look forward to the time when we can all gather again in support of Gaining Ground’s mission.
All of us at Gaining Ground are filled with a deep gratitude for the many ways our community remains committed to hunger relief, especially in response to the growing number of our neighbors who are now experiencing food insecurity. Our donor community generously supported our spring appeal and COVID-response efforts. These gifts made it possible for us to continue our farming operations uninterrupted, directly resulting in a record amount of 55,000 pounds of produce donated year-to-date through July.
Thank you for being part of our community!
