The Jesus Victory Garden (JVG) needs your help in order to continue to provide wholesome produce to local food pantries during this unprecedented time. Since 2011, we have supplied over fourteen thousand pounds of vegetables, fruit, and herbs to agencies serving our neighbors in need. In order to meet our goal of adding one to two thousand pounds to our total this coming season, we urgently need volunteers to adopt one or more garden beds. Adopting involves readying the bed for its crop(s), planting, weeding, harvesting, and preparing the bed for winter at the end of the season. While we usually are a social group, for the present gardeners will be scheduled so that only family units are in the garden at the same time and so that there is a period of time between gardeners.

We encourage children and teens to help in the garden. This is a fun service opportunity that teaches life-long gardening skills and lets youngsters see how what they do with their own hands can make a difference to others. We welcome people of all ages who have never even cared for a houseplant and provide the training, directions,  automatic watering system, seeds, and plants you will need.

While we need people who are willing to tend a bed of vegetables for the whole growing season, we also need volunteers who want to help out now and again or even just once. Perhaps you would like to weigh and/or deliver produce or weed a bed now and again. We can always use extra volunteers to set up the garden in the spring or put it to bed at the end of the growing season.

There are other ways in which you can help, too. We are happy to pass on the extra produce from your home garden to the North Hills Community Cupboard and Manna on Main Street. Please send an email to the address below if you want to contribute from your home garden.

It is not too late to volunteer to help your neighbors. If you are interested in seeing the fruits, and vegetables, of you labor, please email Kati at JVGgrows@vivaldi.net.
