May 30, 2019, was a day of giving to support farming & food justice.


Valley Grows brings together small, local non-profits throughout the Pioneer Valley who are working to grow just and sustainable food systems for their communities.

We are making healthy, local food an option for everyone, and creating opportunities for the next generation of urban and rural farmers.

But this growth can only happen with your support! Farming and food justice give our Valley strength, and together we can make it stronger.

Our Valley thrives because our Valley Grows!

Valley Grows Day was a successful effort, given its small scale in its first year, and the short time from idea to implementation. Over $20,000 was raised through over 160 direct gifts, earning over $16,000 in previously-committed match funds.

The chart below gives a summary of each partner’s targets and how they did. These are not quite final, but we will report final numbers as soon as they are in.

The partners will convene in June to decide whether to continue and, if so, whether to expand the campaign to include more partners. Your feedback is welcome! Please email clem[at]

Thank you for your support!
