How to Get Involved in Grow a Row

Anyone who has a garden can participate in Grow a Row for Edmonton Meals on Wheels’ kitchen! Whether you plant a few extra rows for us, or you simply end up with a bigger harvest than you expected, we appreciate everyone who contributes their fresh seasonal produce to Edmonton Meals on Wheels.

1. Dedicate a Portion of Your Garden

If you love gardening but find that you can’t always use up all the produce you grow (or you’re looking for a reason to grow more!), please think of Edmonton Meals on Wheels. Our professional kitchen team creates menu items featuring as many locally sourced, fresh ingredients as possible. By growing an extra row or two, you can help us bring the fresh flavours of summer to our clients!

2. Share Your Extra Produce

If you find yourself with surplus fruits, vegetables, or herbs that you’re unable to use, don’t let them go to waste. Call us, and if our kitchen is able we’ll gladly accept the extra produce from your garden. Every contribution, big or small, makes a difference.

We are happy to accept:

  • Tomato
  • Zucchini
  • Carrots
  • Lettuces – any variety
  • Root vegetables (beets, turnips, etc.)
  • Onions – any variety
  • Potatoes – any variety
  • Fresh berries – any variety
  • Rhubarb
  • Squash (spaghetti, butternut, etc.)
  • Apples (larger grocery store size)
  • Fresh herbs

Please note we do not accept crab apples.
