Following a conference that focused on developing a Healthy Polk County 2015, Urban Harvest was born. Land behind the church building was tilled into a 90 x90 garden space that provides fresh vegetables and fruit to the local pantry.
These items are accessible to pantry clients on a daily basis and help supplement the monthly 3-day allotment. The garden is tended by 6-8 volunteers from and is able to provide several tons of fresh produce to the pantry during the growing season.
For more information on harvest times and work in the garden, like us at Urban Harvest.
