The Food Bank is home to a one acre garden that grows overs 3,000 pounds of produce each year.

This program provides community members the opportunity to work in the garden and learn what it takes to grow organic practice produce. The garden also provides people with the skills to choose and prepare fresh produce, as well as how to make produce a regular part of a family’s diet. The garden grows a range of fruits and vegetables from blueberries to zucchini to sugar snap peas. All of this local produce then goes out to the community to help alleviate poor nutrition that is often caused by food insecurity.

For more information about the Teaching Garden and how you can get involved, contact Kirsten Riegel, Horticulture Technician.
