Plant It Forward

Plant It Forward logo

Plant It Forward is Glean Kentucky’s initiative to encourage home and community gardeners to intentionally plant and grow extra food in their gardens for gleaning purposes. The amount of space you dedicate to Plant It Forward is up to you. It can be as little as a couple plants in a raised bed garden to several rows in a much larger plot.

If growing food to share with those in need via Plant It Forward is something that
interests you, contact us to let us know about your plans. We may have seeds or plants to help you get started. Hearing from you will also let us know we should touch base with you during the growing season to see how we can help with the harvest.

There are multiple ways Glean Kentucky can help you make sure your Plant It Forward harvest helps feed the hungry. We can arrange a site for you to drop off the harvest or even come glean your garden for you. We’ll put you in touch with your local chapter coordinator to make an arrangement that makes the most sense for your location and gardening needs.

If you’re interested in participating in Plant It Forward, please email with “Plant It Forward” in the subject line.
