Growing for Good

Over 20,000 families living in our tri-county area struggle to eat. We are doing what we can to help.    

Each year, our dedicated volunteers help plant, harvest and drive our sustainably grown fresh produce to local food banks and pantries.

In addition to farming our land, we also till and prep individual home garden plots providing families with dignity, the means to be self-sufficient and the opportunity to give back to their community.

This important work operates without endowment or Government support and relies on our community to bring food to the tables through donations, volunteering, advocacy, visitation, and promotion.

To date, we have:  

  • Donated over 200,000 pounds of food. 
  • Provided over 20,000 meals. 
  • Planted almost 2,000 family plots. 
  • Reduced our run-off into local waterways by over 90%.

Impact

Our Growing for Good program has contributed over 200,000 pounds since inception in 2014 through its 33 food plots. The 100 acres of hay land feeds 70 cattle located offsite, producing 8,000 pounds of ground beef each year. 

As part of its commitment to organic produce, the site is exemplary for its stormwater and nutrient management practices, reducing run-off into local waterways by over 90% and helping to preserve and protect the region’s natural habitats. By sustainable farming and preservation, we want to become a site where history meets health and where we can all grow for good, together.
