Grow Forward Grovenor and Community Garden

Thank you to our Community Garden Sponsors!

Thank you to the generous support of Riverbend Gardens. Janelle and Aaron Hebert, owners of Riverbend Gardends, donated two flats of marigolds and some bedding plants to the Grow Forward Grovenor team to give away at various events. We thank them for their support.


Riverbend Gardens also has a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. As an alternative to visiting local Farmer's Markets, you can order a selection of high quality locally grown vegetables from the CSA program. They will be packaged and delivered to a local commercial business in your area for your convenient pick up. The subscription is available for couples or families and there are 4 week and 15 week subscriptions available. More information at
