What is a community garden? It is a unique space where neighbors and residents can come together to build community and grow food.
The produce in the Community Gardens of Hope Hill is grown by individual community gardeners for themselves, their families and for donation to local food pantries. If you would like to share in the harvest, you are welcome to sign up for an individual 4×12 raised garden plot or to volunteer in the garden. For a $10.00 annual membership (only $5.00 after July 1) and a commitment to work at least four hours a month you are entitled to your share of the harvest.
The Community Gardens of Hope Hill are designed to be a community space with picnic tables, a shaded bench, and a labyrinth for quiet time, prayer or meditation. We just completed our 2nd full growing season and God’s bountiful harvest has enriched the lives of our garden members, members of several local church congregations, and recipients of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta’s food distribution in Ferguson. Over the winter we will be planning next years crops and, if public health conditions allow, several educational events next summer for kids and adults to learn the value and use of home grown produce.
