on volunteer labor, the Harvest for
the Hungry Garden delivers organically grown produce each week to several local hunger
programs: FISH of Santa Rosa (an emergency food pantry), Elisha's Pantry, The Living Room (a drop-in center for homeless women &
children), Bethlehem Towers (low income senior housing), Redwood Gospel Mission (an emergency shelter, hot meal site and recovery program for the homeless) and the Food For Thought AIDS Food Bank (serving people with HIV/AIDS and other critical illnesses).
In 2018 we harvested over 25,368 lbs of fresh
produce - tomatoes, carrots, beets, squash, fruit, lettuce, leafy greens, basil, onions and garlic - grown on
a 1-1/4 acre parcel owned by Christ Church
United Methodist, all thanks to the efforts of our dedicated volunteer crew.
The Harvest Garden boasts
30 no-till beds devoted to growing organic produce using drip irrigation. The Garden
also includes a small fruit orchard, Wildlife Habitat areas, Medicinal Plant Garden and Backyard
We also offer workshops on vegetable gardening, integrated pest control,
native habitats, fruit tree pruning and much more. (Click here for our current schedule.)
