Giving Garden is just getting started with this version of our app. It's like a seedling that is just starting to grow. Our mission is to grow communities around food and food around communities, so please send us your feedback at email@example.com so that we can continue to improve the app and build what our local food communities need.
Note: We have removed the social features of the Giving Garden app, so you can no longer share food and gardening supplies through the app. We encourage you to look into your local Facebook groups, marketplace or Nextdoor to find sharing communities in your area.
