CanDo CanGrow

CanDo CanGrow had its beginning at the 2013 Napa Food Day, when some Napa Valley CanDo volunteers and members of Napa County Master Gardeners realized that our Napa Valley Food Banks are in need of more fresh produce. In 2014, on land donated by the Napa Community Garden, a core group of 5-6 volunteers grew and donated 1,533 pounds of fresh summer vegetables for the Emergency Food Pantry on Yajome Street. Now in its second year, that Food Bank garden is even larger and is being ably tended by students from Napa County Office of Education schools and a committed group of CanDo volunteers. Our next step is to encourage other gardeners—whether their garden is at home, at school, or at their place of work—to “Plant One For The Food Bank.” Several wineries, schools, and places of business have already accepted the challenge.
