The mission of the GRACE Community Garden is to cultivate a healthy community by building collaborations and providing organically grown produce to those in need.
Garden workdays are rewarding, feasible opportunities to help local families in a tangible way. Having access to fresh fruits and vegetables is a game changer for families, for whom fruits are a rare luxury and nutrition is key.
The GRACE Community Garden provides an average of 1,800 pounds of fresh, organic produce each year to nourish families in need. Be a part of what the Community Garden is yielding for families in need by joining us.
They devoted their efforts to early summer planting, including planting tomatillos, succession tomatoes, cage them, plan succession watermelon, cucumber, and cantaloupe. They turned compost piles to aerate, watered the piles and added leaves, did some weeding and mulching.
Most of the organically grown produce from the garden is donated to the GRACE Pantry. If you would like to be on our garden e-mail list, please e-mail Alison Shumaker.
