We're growing a healthier and greener Morristown community.
Our COVID-19 RESPONSE
Grow It Green Morristown is committed to sustaining operations that have the greatest impact for those who need local food the most. We are adapting our operations daily, given the incredible pace of change in all aspects of our lives. But what doesn’t change is our commitment to ACTIVELY HELP OUR COMMUNITY.
We ask ourselves everyday:
How do we keep people safe while inspiring healthy eating and wellness, and providing access to nutritious food for the most vulnerable in our community?
Grow It Green Morristown’s answer is:
Donating 100% of our harvest to those who need it most
Creating and sharing virtual learning resources to inspire and educate our community (youth and beyond!)
Starting seeds in the Greenhouse to plant when the beds are ready, and weather is right to insure productive yields
Planting the seedlings in our carefully cared for, low-till soil at the farm to grow fresh, healthy local food…because this need is GROWING!

The New York Times
Grow It Green Morristown creates sustainable farms and gardens, and educates communities on healthy eating and environmental stewardship. We believe that fresh, local food should be accessible to all.
In order to continue to provide the services of engagement and education to the Morristown community, we rely on individual, foundation, and corporate support. You can help GIGM through donations, event participation, volunteering, and service offerings!
As part of our farm to school education program, nearly 3,000 students aged Pre-K to college visit The Urban Farm each year. We also make student connections through in-class visits, covering topics including plant science, healthy eating, and environmental stewardship.
Creating opportunities for connection to the soil and where their food comes has a direct impact on healthy eating habits for children and their families. Over 100 families garden with us at the Early Street
Community Garden, surrounded by a unique and sustainable public parklet.
