Garden Locations

At this time, two gardens make up the Des Moines Food Pantry Gardens and they are located on the land of two churches:

The Agape Garden is located by Faith Chapel of Ankeny First United Methodist Church at 7384 NW 16th Street in Ankeny. It is close by John Deere.

The Faith and Grace Garden is located by St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church at 1020 24th Street in West Des Moines. It is between 24th Street and 28th Street on Ashworth Road.

In 2010 these two gardens produced over four tons of fresh vegetables that were donated to the Des Moines Area Religious Council, the Eddie Davis Community Center and the food distribution program at Trinity Methodist Church.

This year, these two gardens have increased in area and our goal for this year is to grow over eight tons of fresh vegetables. Can you help? Volunteers are retirees, church groups, civic groups, students, neighbors, and any other people who want to enjoy fresh air and sunshine while helping other people. Volunteers help with planting, weeding, watering, harvesting in the garden and delivering to the food pantries.
