Deans Marsh Grow Free Pantry

How it works…

If you would like to participate, please see photo attached for instructions.

Then head down to the Deans Marsh Community Cottage to deliver your gifts.

In assisting us all to avoid Corona Virus PLEASE:  Wash all vegetables before placing them in the Pantry.  While being at the Pantry please practice social distancing with other community members.  Please only touch the produce you plan to take home.

If we take these into consideration during these times, this initiative will be a beautiful success!

Lots of Love, The Grow Make Gather Team
