Feed the Hungry, Love the Earth, Live Your Faith,
Grow the Greenhouse!

The Faith & Grace Garden is a food pantry garden. All the fruits vegetables grown in the garden are donated to feed hungry people. We donate on average 10,000 pounds of fresh, organic, fruits and vegetables to feed the hungry and have been doing so since 2000.  Click Here To Watch A Video About the Garden! 

This year we are taking a big step forward. We want to feed even more people by building a greenhouse to grow plant sets for our garden and the 40+ other donation gardens in central Iowa.

Tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, cabbage, and many other vegetables are started from seed in a greenhouse and then set into the garden as young plants to grow until harvest.

Our plans call for the purchase and construction of a 20’x48’ permanent greenhouse beside the garden. The greenhouse will provide room to grow some 6,500 plant sets each year!

65,000 more pounds of food to fed the hungry!!!!!

The Faith & Grace Garden has no paid staff; We are an all-volunteer effort. Our volunteers are a cross-section of our community. Volunteers come from surrounding neighborhoods and include schools, churches, civic groups and companies. We partner with local high schools and students earn community services hours as well as class credit.

Here are the crops we are growing this year:

Apples
Lima Beans
Asparagus
Melons
Blue Berries
Peppers
Broccoli
Potatoes
Bush Beans
Radishes
Cabbage
Tomatoes
Cantaloupe
Spinach
Cucumbers
Sweet Potatoes
Garlic
Winter Squash
Lettuce

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
