All of the food grown in the Faith & Grace Garden is donated to feed local hungry people.
Last fall we doubled the size of the garden from one acre to two acres.

In 2023, our hope is to double the amount of organic fruits and vegetables we donate each year. Last year we donated 17,000 pounds. In 2023 we aim to donate over 30,000 pounds of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables to local food pantries.

Planting Time Continues in the Garden
Last week we planted 300 pounds of seed potatoes, 3,000 onion sets, and rows of lettuce and cabbage.
This week we will finish planting lettuce and cabbage and start planting broccoli, cauliflower, and kale.

Here is how you can help in the garden:
