Community Garden


Its Time to Plant

This summer we are growing cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, black berries and pole beans. Our garden also serves as a butterfly garden! Bees, butterfly and other flowering insects are vital to our ecosystem and enjoy all of the different flower species we have for them to pollinate.

The Giving Garden

 The Community Garden was started as a way to supply the Food Pantry with fresh produce. Over time, its purpose has evolved and expanded and today it serves many purposes. It houses several raised garden beds which are planted with a variety of vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowering plants. It is most commonly known as a butterfly garden, but bees are welcome as well. The garden sitting area provides a wonderful spot for quiet contemplation and reflection and is a popular respite for residents of the Men's Housing Program. Day to day the garden is tended to by staff, volunteers and residents of the Men's Housing Program.


The Garden is always in need of supplies and attention
