Interested in a garden plot?
Wesley Church is a church in your neighborhood, dedicated to creating a garden experience that brings the larger Bethlehem community together with a common goal, the garden! Our goal is to donate a minimum one half of the harvest raised by everyone to a local food pantry, making fresh vegetables more available to everyone. Additionally, we would like to raise awareness about the importance of fresh, local produce through educational sessions.
Cost for is one-time annual fee of $30. We ask that you donate 50% of your harvest to feed the hungry. We are also looking for volunteers to help tend the garden and deliver food to area food banks.
The mission of the community garden is to provide fresh, nutritionally-rich, and local produce to area food pantries through growing and maintaining a garden that reflects the collective contribution of members of the community in which we live. By fostering collaboration between community members young, old, and of different backgrounds, we together create a certain synergy that can serve as a springboard to deal with larger social concerns. We strive to benefit and educate the most vulnerable members of our community with an eye to food security issues that affect us all. We accomplish this in a healthy, organic way.
