Grow It Eat It

The mission of the University of Maryland Extension Grow It Eat It project is to promote backyard and community food production. Master Gardeners teach classes/workshops, develop demonstration gardens, and educate Marylanders on how to produce their own affordable and healthy food while using sustainable gardening practices in their home, community, and school gardens.

Anne Arundel County Master Gardeners promote that mission through public awareness meetings at libraries and other venues to demonstrate various planting mediums.

For more information on Anne Arundel County’s program, contact project chair Amy Payne.

For additional guidance on food gardening, visit the University of Maryland Extension Grow It Eat It web site.
