Lil' Free Farmstand

We invite you to join a growing list of "Gardeners that Give" that are sharing their extra veggies to build a more resilient community!!

We are seeking nice sturdy shelf-stable veggies like tomatoes, squash, potatoes, onions, garlic, peppers, eggplant, carrots, green beans, cucumbers, zucchini, etc.  Grow em', buy em' or donate and we'll get them to families that need em'!

 

* For a full list of helpful veggies see PDF link at the bottom of the page

The impact YOU will make? 

Increase food access in our Nashua neighborhoods

Food desert [food dez-ert] noun. - An urban area in which it is difficult to find and buy affordable or good-quality fresh food.

 

We have food deserts in Nashua where it is difficult to easily get to stores that sell affordable, healthful foods.  So we locate our Lil' Free Farmstands there.

"Gardeners that Give" - We invite you to become one if you grow food, growing a little extra and share.  It will support our community and increase our local food shed shifting some of the burden off the food system and into our own hands.... aka making us more resilient 

If you do not grow food we welcome you to donate and we will purchase from local farmers, which will in turn strengthen our local food resilience.

Lil Free Farmstand fills the gap

It wasn't that long ago when we knew our neighbors and were happy to share a cup of sugar and we believe now is the time to return.

We invite you to join as a "Gardener that Gives" with others in Nashua and be part of movement that brings back a healthy interconnected community supporting one another.

Partners committed to bringing this to our neighborhoods

We are grateful for our community partners, the "Gardeners that Give" and our Presenting Sponsor Service Credit Union for their support in helping this program grow and spread through our Nashua neighborhoods in the coming years!  We couldn't do it without everyone working together, so we are so glad to be working together to serve others!
