Community Garden Programs
A sustainable food source is imperative to a healthy family. Samaritan House Ministries Community Garden Network is committed to providing opportunities for people to create and sustain a healthy food source for their family. To this end, we are pleased to work with the already established Community Garden Network to provide coordination of garden plots throughout the city. The coordinator also offers weekly workshops from April to September on a variety of topics relevant to gardening on the prairies.
Community Garden Network
The Samaritan House Ministries Community Garden Network is a primarily volunteer-run network of gardens throughout the city. With over 800 garden plots of various sizes, the network offers families and individuals space and assistance to create a vegetable garden for the growing season. The program is open to everyone, though annual registration is necessary. Each garden site is administered by a volunteer site coordinator.
For more information or to sign up for a garden plot, please contact the coordinator.
