The 2024 Grow a Garden order form opens on February 1st.
DUG’s Grow a Garden program connects individuals and community groups* to seeds, seedlings, and education to get growing at home or in a DUG garden.
Our goal is to increase access to gardening for all!
We make it easy for new gardeners to learn new skills while removing financial barriers to growing healthy, organic food. The Grow a Garden program is for anyone who wants to connect to their food and the earth.
*Group applications are for those applying on behalf of groups such as schools, classrooms, educational, human service or faith-based organizations and community garden donation plots.
How To Participate in Grow a Garden:
1) Select a Grow a Garden Kit from the options below
All seeds are non-GMO + organic from Botanical Interests and all seedlings are organic and grown through Blooma Farms. Please note there are no substitutions of different seeds or seedlings available. (If you’re looking for specific items that are not part of our Grow Kits, join us for our Spring Plant Sale!).
All Garden Kits come with a Plant Care Guide that includes sample layouts for planting.
