Their mission is to help those in need through a volunteer effort of planting, picking, and delivering fresh produce via a unique model that: heightens awareness of socio-economic issues, highlights the importance of local farms, and inspires volunteers across many generations and skill sets.

A few years after Chip started the garden program, he was offered access to additional acreage. Most of this new available land was at PVO, where broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower were planted – both spring and fall planting in some years. Other land was offered by friends in the area. One offered an acre behind their house to grow potatoes, which became yet another Bethlehem Presbyterian Church mission project. Other friends freed up an acre at their home specifically for corn, and a local buffalo farm offered a small piece to grow melons.   In addition to the garden programs, this additional acreage dedicated for planting totaled 7 acres in 2009. Of that acreage, just shy of 40,000 pounds of food was produced and donated to feeding agencies all over the state of New Jersey. That’s about 120,000 servings of delicious healthy produce, right off the farm.   These planting programs are so successful thanks mostly to the generosity of landowners and farmers who love seeing a portion of their property at work for the greater good. Secondly, the programs are successful due to the generosity of time of their nearly 1,000 dedicated volunteers who are happy to help plant and harvest the produce that comes off this land.

Happiness lies in good health and a bad memory.

The new facility, anticipated hiring of staff personnel and providing evening and Saturday hours will allow us to accommodate the needs of their current and future clientele.

They envision the proposed program(s) being sustained via grants, donations, fundraisers and other contributions. Today, the Churches of the Ministerium, the surrounding towns in the bayshore area, businesses, civic organizations, their neighbors and friends are donating their time, money and efforts to help us realize their goal.
