Purchase a Cape Ann License Plate to Benefit BYG!

$15 of your purchase will support Backyard Growers

The Cape Ann Community Foundation has launched a new Cape Ann License Plate program as a fundraiser for local non-profit organizations. With this program, $15 of every new plate registration designated to Backyard Growers goes directly to support our programs. This is a great way to get more Cape Ann License Plates on the road while also raising funds for non-profits like Backyard Growers.  Show your love and support of Cape Ann today!

When purchasing your new plate, designate Backyard Growers as the non-profit you are supporting and we receive $15!



When you participate Backyard Growers' Give-a-Garden/Get-a-Garden program, not only do you get a garden, but you make it possible for a low-income Gloucester family to have a garden just like yours! 

  • When you make a contribution of $1000, we use half of it to build a garden for you, and the other half to build a garden for a low-income Gloucester family. $500 of your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

  • We handle all aspects of building your garden. We come to your home, help you pick the best spot for your garden, build your 4 x 8’ raised bed, and have it filled with premium compost!

  • We also provide you with a Growing Guide and starter seeds.

This opportunity is available to anyone on the North Shore. For more information contact our Community Programs Manager.

donate your tools

All done with those grow lights? Tired of your old shovels and rakes? Planning on upgrading your trowels? We'll take whatever you are no longer using (as long as it's not going to give anyone tetanus!). To schedule a pick up or drop off contact our Community Programs Manager.

Donate your time

There are so many ways to be involved with Backyard Growers. You could volunteer as a Garden Mentor, help us with one of our many seasonal tasks, or offer to help us build our organization by joining our Board of Directors or Advisory Board.
