     Relying exclusively on volunteer labor, the Harvest for the Hungry Garden delivers organically grown produce each week to several local hunger programs: FISH of Santa Rosa, Elisha's Pantry, The Living Room (drop-in center for homeless women & children), Bethlehem Towers (low income senior housing), Redwood Gospel Mission (emergency shelter, hot meals and recovery programs for the homeless) and the Food For Thought AIDS Food Bank.

    In 2016 we harvested over 24,000 lbs of fresh produce (tomatoes, carrots, beets, squash, orchard fruit, lettuce, leafy greens, basil, onions and garlic) all grown on one & a quarter acre loaned to us by Christ Church United Methodist, thanks to the efforts of a dedicated volunteer crew.

     The Harvest Garden boasts 30 no-till beds devoted to growing organic produce, watered with drip irrigation. It includes a Wildlife Habitat Garden, Medicinal Plant Garden and Backyard Demonstration Garden. It's also an ecological learning center, offering classes (click here for current schedule) on organic gardening, integrated pest control, native habitats, fruit tree pruning and more.
