About the Program: 

 The Giving Field on Liberty Street is a donation garden with a mission of feeding the hungry fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, as well as, provide education on living a healthier and more sustainable life through the garden.  All of the harvested food goes to the area soup kitchens to feed the hungry. 

 

This one acre piece of land is located across the street from St. Anne School that teaches children from pre-k thru eighth grade. The students and parents take an active part in planting, maintaining and harvesting at The Field.

The garden was built on October 13, 2012 and consists of 35 raised beds and 21 fruit trees. To date, January 10, 2013 we have harvested over 600 pounds of food that has gone directly to feed the hungry and have accumulated closed to 2,000 volunteer hours.
