The Grow Together Community Garden at Gateway Church is a community of friends who serve God and others by harvesting for the Feed the Community food pantry. Members of this community garden learn the secrets of growing organic vegetables, help tend the garden, harvest and get back to the basics. God provides for the basic needs of his people through food, empowerment and community.
All of our produce goes to the Feed the Community (FTC) food pantry located at Gateway Church. We do not have personal plots, rather we are a community service graden who “Grow Together.” We produce an organic retail value between $10-15K each year that is donated through volunteer harvests each week. Wednesday’s are when families attend FTC and are able to choose from whatever crop is being harvested. We average around 20 volunteer each Saturday morning and perform a one hour harvest on Tuesday evenings. Our garden will turn 7 years old in March 2018.
