Grow•Give•Teach

The Generous Garden Project is fighting hunger by growing, harvesting and the delivery of fresh grown produce to those in Greenville, SC. We partner with local organizations and communities to teach others how to grow fresh produce for themselves in a sustainable way. We have begun working with agencies to duplicate this model so we can help fight hunger on a state and national level.

Did you know that South Carolina is ranked the ninth highest for hungry people in the United States?

For most, hunger is a mild, temporary feeling that comes between meals. But for some it's a struggle for survival and health.

The particular people we’re most concerned about aren’t in a distant land, but right here living among us. We all know ‘about’ them. While a number of charitable organizations work to provide food - which is amazing in itself - little of what is provided can replace the nutrition of fresh produce. In fact, there is nothing on earth that can completely replace fresh fruits and vegetables.

That’s where we come in. We are working to fight hunger in a slightly different way by growing and harvesting fresh produce and then giving it away to local ministries and food pantries. Whenever possible, we combine a unique blend of state of the art technologies and approaches in our organic farming techniques.The collective effort is called: The Generous Garden Project.

It is a known fact that if people get fresh fruits and veggies in their diet, they think more clearly, have more energy and live more fruitful lives. We are here to fight hunger one garden at a time.

Growing fresh organic produce in the Upstate S.C. is a lot of fun. We grow such things as Tomatoes, Zucchini, Squash, Cucumbers, Okra, Beets, Potatoes, Spinach, Lettuce, Watermelons, Beans, Herbs, Flowers and much more. We have two gardens in Upstate SC. One is 4.5 acres of land on Verdin Road, the other is 20 acres in Taylors around the old Bleachery Mill. On both locations we use organic methods such as vermiculture, aquaponics, composting and many other techniques to insure great tasting produce with no man-made chemicals.

Giving is the best part of what we do. It is awesome to see people's eyes light up when we deliver our fresh, delicious produce.

Gleaning is the practice of gathering crops that would otherwise be left in the fields to rot, or plowed under after a harvest. When a farmer calls with available produce to glean, we organize volunteers and go to the fields for a gleaning event.

Teaching others how to become more self-sustainable is very important to us. Growing your own fresh produce is not hard and does not take a lot of time or money. In fact, you can grow your own for less than what you pay at the grocery stores.
