Services: 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.
