Supplying Food

Individual gardeners grow primarily for their own use. They have given food to Interfaith Food Pantry and the Giles County food bank. They provide food during all seasons- in the winter it comes from the greenhouse located on the garden property. Individual gardeners transport the food to the food banks and pantries, or the  garden coordinator will take it if it is collected from several garden plots.


The garden uses sustainable farming practices.  Water conservation and soil building practices are encouraged/required.  The land is under easements to preserve the five acre property in perpetuity.
