Growing for Good (GFG) was established in 2021 by Greens Farms Garden Club. The project's purpose: to grow and deliver fresh, organic vegetables and herbs to those living in low-income areas where access to healthy, fresh foods is scarce. 
In response, GFG has committed to donate our entire harvest to the food bank at
Mercy Learning Center (MLC), a non-profit educational facility providing basic literacy and life skills training to the low-income women of the greater Bridgeport area.
Women For Women
The women of Greens Farms Garden Club are proud to serve the women of MLC with the gift of fresh, organic vegetables and herbs for them and their families.
It's a simple plan with a profound impact.

How can you get involved?

Work has begun on our fourth year of "Growing for Good" Initiative 2024.

Our club will be managing two gardens again this year: 
Prospect Gardens and Wakeman Town Farm on Cross Highway, both in Westport.  Planting and harvesting is ongoing throughout the spring, summer and into the early fall.
