Backyard Harvest



Backyard Harvest provides better access to fresh, locally-grown foods to low-income families and older adults in northern Idaho and eastern Washington.  Grow for the Greater Good (GGG) was piloted in 2013 as a part of the Harvest Share program. They partnered with eight local groups to start gardens that were grown strictly for donation. BYH paid for starts and seeds and helped with planning and initial installations. They also purchased lumber for raised beds, soil supplements, and watering supplies.
