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 work in the garden and share in the harvest, you are encouraged to sign up and join us. For a $10.00 annual membership and a commitment to work at least four hours a month you are entitled to your share of the harvest.

Community Garden Work Day Announcement
Join us for a community workday Saturday June 4 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm to spread mulch under the new fruit trees and re-mulch the center of the prayer walk. We will also add wood chips to the walkways around beds 4-10, around the prayer walk, and in the area leading to the new shelter area.
If you can bring a shovel or wheelbarrow/cart with you that would be great.
Immediately afterwards plan to stay for “Tea in the Garden” to join invited guests for tea or lemonade and snacks, a garden scavenger hunt, and some farm-to-table recipe sharing.
Here we grow again!
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 are well into our 3rd 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 and St. Stephen’s Episcopal free food distribution in Ferguson.
