Rebuilding after "Sandy"
After "Sandy", the garden will be rebuilt by members and volunteers. Located on the Hudson River, all 72 beds were washed away. Mission: Provide residents with the opportunity to grow food and flowers in a beautiful setting, in a manner that does not harm the environment and that encourages friendships and cooperation. Members also donate produce to local food pantries through the Plant A Row For The Hungry program.
Harvard Growing Together Community Garden - Harvard, IL
Serving 2,000 individuals, 8,000 lbs of produce!
Mission:To educate food pantry clientele on the health benefits of fresh produce in the daily diet, provide gardening advice to pantry clients and community members interested in growing their own vegetables, provide hands-on workshops for youth on growing vegetables from seed starting through harvest and provide several thousand pounds of fresh vegetables to low income families in the Harvard community.
Mission: Of the CCS SpringGreen Garden is to provide organically grown fresh produce for the Food for Lane county on-site pantry. The garden will also be a demonstration and teaching site for anyone interested in learning to grow food for themselves and others. By providing fresh produce and an opportunity to learn to grow food for themselves and others the garden will empower people to make healthy changes in their lives and their family’s life.
4 tons of Produce!
Mission: River City Harvest strives to provide gardening opportunities for everyone, as well as to grow fresh food for charitable organizations. We turned a vacant lot into a productive garden for the Salvation Army's family service program. In 2012 we harvested nearly 4 tons of produce to fill food baskets with healthy vegetables. Extra produce goes to the Cascade County Food Bank. It's truly a community effort run by enthusiastic gardeners with a bountiful result.
Donated 1,700 lbs!
Mission: Our garden exists to serve two purposes, first to provide an opportunity and a place for our community to experiment and grow fresh produce for their family, and secondly, to share with those in our community who are in need.
