Welcome to our new blog for Plant a Row (for the Hungry) program ran by the Fresno County Master Gardeners (and their friends).Plant A Row (PAR) is a nationwide, people-to-people program sponsored locally by UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners and Community Food Bank.
The Aim is to make it convenient for home gardeners and others with extra fresh produce to find locations that welcome donations of any size and will guickly distribute the fresh fruit and vegetables to those in need. Click here for a listing of PAR Food Pantries and community organizations currently accepting donations.
The Goal is to connect home gardeners who grow extra fruits and vegetables with those in our community who are in need of that nutritious food.
PAR volunteers pledge to donate produce through the Community Food Bank's network of food pantries and at PAR-sponsored events. PAR gardens are excellent projects for families, schools, and youth organizations.
Leave a message at 226-1528 if none of these are convenient and a Master Gardener volunteer will contact you to work out an individual arrangement./span>
