Garden on the Go

Food Bank of Central New York distributes "Garden on the Go" kits containing 20 Root Pouches, assorted seeds and seedlings, and gardening brochures to partner agencies free of charge. These container gardens are distributed by the agency to families to grow fresh produce of their own. Root Pouches replaced buckets used in the past due to their cost effectiveness, lighter weight to help with distribution, sustainability as they are made of recycled plastic water bottles, and better growing conditions for plants.

Partner Agencies can order the kits through Agency Express. Kits are available late Spring through early Fall.
