We use our land as a source of sustainable nourishment to help provide fresh and healthy food pantry options. The gardens are used as a vehicle that teaches children and families to grow their own food and respect our natural environment. We have 32 community garden plots on property – 16 plots that are maintained by a volunteer gardener that grow seasonal produce to be distributed to Mission clients, and 16 that are available for families to plant and maintain.
The original set of gardens were built by kids from the former Linn County Youth Shelter through a partnership with the organization. Our second set of gardens were built by a Boy Scout for his Eagle Scout service project. Built by local community members, feeding local community members.
To reserve a plot – contact the Mission. We start gardening early spring and go through the season.
