Volunteer and Be a Part of a Great Event!

We are looking for some stellar volunteers to help make our Decatur's Dinner Party a success! The Decatur's Dinner Party celebrates Decatur’s vibrant food community - from the exceptional Global Growers farmers who grow fresh, healthy food, to the extraordinary chefs whose restaurants serve Decatur families a dazzling array of cuisines. The event consists of a cocktail hour with passed appetizers, followed by a four-course, family-style meal at the Historic Decatur Cemetery. We've got lots of different options for positions/roles, so whatever you're interested in doing, we'll do our best to make it happen!

Tru-Nut Powdered Peanut Butter

We were thrilled to meet the owner, Reid Edger, on a Saturday morning in the spring when he came out to volunteer at our Bamboo Creek Farm. Not only did he help spread mulch all over the farm, but he also decided to go a step further and joined our community of supporters.

We are grateful for his generosity and his support of Global Growers core mission.

We know you will enjoy Tru-Nut Organic Powdered Peanut Butter as you get creative adding Tru-Nut along with your favorite ingredients to a healthy protein shake, smoothie, or other delicious creation. The peanut flavor is even fantastic to use with baked goods!

What Is It?: Komatsuna

Komatsuna, also named Japanese water spinach, is a leafy green in the brassica family with a mild mustard mixed with cabbage flavor. Try it stir-fried, boiled, and added to soups or used fresh in salads. It is also an excellent source of calcium!


What's Cooking?: Vegan African Peanut Stew with Eggplant and Okra

The summer season can become repetitive and it's hard to find different ways to use the same veggies week to week.

Trust me, I get it.

This stew can add a little variety to your week and calls for both okra and eggplant. Also a great way to have something to quickly re-heat when you're not feeling up to cooking! Try substituting peanut butter for the Tru-Nut peanut powder.
