“Growing Good” Soil Donation Program

Coast of Maine’s “Growing Good” Program
Soil Donations Made To School Gardens

At Coast of Maine, we believe in supporting education, local retailers, and empowering students to make healthy physical, emotional and environmental choices. Instead of a monetary donation, we happily donate Coast of Maine products to school gardens.  All retail market area schools are welcome to participate, and the process is simple!

Here’s How:  School garden coordinators fill out the Request Form below.  If approved, we will coordinate with your local Coast of Maine retailer to reserve up to 10 cubic feet of soil for you to pick up!

Our donation helps fund your program and will bring the local retailer closer to the community. It also serves and acts as a seed starter for the kid’s lifelong love of gardening, health and the environment. In short, we all win.

Because it has long been the philosophy of the Coast of Maine brand, that our locally made products should only be sold by local independent retailers / garden centers, (not in “big box stores”)  we ask all school Garden Coordinators to not only pick up your donations at your local garden center, but to also thank that garden center publicly on your social media pages!  The garden center receives a credit for the sale of the product from Coast of Maine and YOU get to feel great about supporting and promoting a local community business.  Win – Win!

Terms and Conditions of Donations: Coast of Maine has a limited budget for charitable donations and cannot guarantee all requests will be fulfilled.  We ask that donation requests be made at least 30 days prior to your planned planting/use date for consideration. -All donation requests will be evaluated on a case by case basis for approval.
