Since its inception in 2011, the Jesus Victory Garden has been supplying vegetables and fruit to local food cupboards. Nearly 9,000 pounds of produce has been donated to those in need over the past five growing seasons. Working together, Jarrettown United Methodist Church volunteer gardeners prepare the beds, plant the seeds, weed by hand, and harvest the crops. Gardeners are dedicated to using natural methods of fertilizing crops and controlling insects. We want our garden to be as ecologically-friendly as possible and our produce to be free from harmful chemicals. Over the years, we have experimented with various crops. We endeavor to find the crops that are best suited to our garden and most desired by the people who eat them. Our primary crops are beets, collards, green beans, potatoes, and tomatoes. As the blueberry bushes and fruit trees grow in size, their yearly yield increases.
