Community Gardens

garden-with-signWe 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.

garden-to-buildingThe 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.
