The mission and goal of the onsite garden is to provide fresh, nutritious produce to our agencies. We also educate people about the benefits of growing their own produce.
The ‘Back 40’
The forty beds in the back are devoted to growing produce using organic practices, for our neighbors in need. The food is grown using organic practice and is often distributed to agencies the day after it is picked.
The ‘Front 20’
The twenty beds in the front make up our herb and permaculture garden that is primarily used for teaching. The entire garden and Education Pavilion is available to the public as a field trip opportunity for classes, workshops, or experiential learning opportunities.
