Forgotten Harvest has many ways for you to get involved in the fight against food insecurity. Whether you’re looking to dive in with volunteer work or support our organization with donations, we make it easy to help your community.

The newest manifestation of our dedication to a healthier and more empowered metro Detroit? Seed to Feed! Seed to Feed is an all-digital monthly giving program that is designed to support Forgotten Harvest Farms, the 95 acres of farmland in Fenton, MI maintained by our dedicated farm staff and volunteers to bring fresh produce to metro Detroiters in need.

With a small monthly commitment of $10, $20, or $40 per month, you’ll support general operations on the farm including the purchase of seeds, seedlings, and crop protection for a portion of land at Forgotten Harvest Farms. That’s around the cost of signing up for a streaming service or monthly subscription box:

  • Netflix = $16/mo.
  • Spotify = $11/mo.
  • Ipsy = $13/mo.
  • Scentbird = $16/mo.

…Except with this monthly donation, you’ll be making a direct and significant impact in the lives of your neighbors! Too often those in our community experiencing food insecurity are unable to afford or access fresh produce, a key component in healthy living. Our new Seed to Feed program is one more way Forgotten Harvest is ensuring metro Detroiters have access to enough nutritious food for themselves and their families.

When you sign up for Seed to Feed, you’ll receive:

  • Regular digital communication from the farm with updates on land prep, seed planting, crop growth, and harvesting
  • Dedicated opportunities to tour Forgotten Harvest Farms and to help with planting and harvesting the land you’re supporting
  • A Seed to Feed sticker

Interested in what you’ll be helping to grow this year? Our farm team gives careful thought to our crop plan by meeting with our client services and food sourcing teams to best determine the specific cultural and dietary needs of the community.

The 2024 Forgotten Harvest Farms crop plan, for example, includes a new variety of potatoes with low glycemic value as a better option for people with diabetes or heart disease. We’re also introducing red cabbage for the first time after discussing its prominence in culturally specific diets. Other crops you can support this season include several varieties of peppers, collard greens, eggplant, green beans, sweet corn, zucchini, watermelon, honey dew, lettuce, pumpkins, and garlic.

Forgotten Harvest Farms is a special place with a noble mission. We want to get as much fresh produce out into our community as possible because we know maintaining proper nutrient levels is crucial for children’s growth and development, for focus and ease in our days, and for preventing disease and calming chronic pain.

We couldn’t do what we do without the passion and generosity of people like you — join Seed to Feed today to help Forgotten Harvest grow farm-fresh food to nourish our neighbors in need!
