Garden in a Box

Overview

Since 2016, we have been encouraging new and low-income gardeners to try their hand at growing their own food. Each spring we distribute Garden In a Box kits that include seedlings, seeds, instructions, and other tools to help gardeners grow vegetables in a 4×4 plot. Throughout the year we offer an educational workshop series providing information about gardening.

Please follow us on Facebook to find out more about our Garden in a Box giveaway and educational events.

2018-19 Program

Join us on Saturday, May 19th from 9am-11am at 2823 Fairfax Street. We’ll be handing out kits and working in the food pantry garden!

We will have extra seeds and seedlings available on Saturday, but all of our kits have been reserved at this time.
