Be a local sponsor

Feed those in need while growing your business

Hurry! The sponsorship deadline is April 30th, 2024.

Plants For Cans is a community driven food drive. Heirloom, ready-to-plant garden crops are exchanged for canned goods to be donated to local food pantries.

Why Plants for Cans?

Spring plant sales are huge. Some gardeners will spend hundreds of dollars on organic, varietes of all kinds. Plants for Cans takes this seasonal need and turns it into a community event, benefiIng local businesses and growers while feeding those in need. Donations can be written off after the event.
