Gardening for Health

Learn the skills you and your family need to grow, harvest, cook and preserve fresh vegetables in our Gardening for Health program. Individual and group plot spaces are free but require maintenance from the gardener. The garden is accessible from April to October. Assistance is provided to beginners.

In 2019, the Gardening for Health members donated 1253.5 pounds of fresh vegetables to the local food bank. Gardeners donated: 789lbs of Tomatoes, 139lbs of Peppers, 76lbs of Green Beans, 27lbs of Cucumbers, 72lbs of Zucchini, 20lbs of Eggplants, 13.5lbs of Onions, 82lbs of Potatoes, 5lbs of Okra, 4lbs of Tomatillos, 1lb of Carrots and 25lbs of Squash
