Here at Harmony Springs, we have a unique opportunity and privilege to positively impact our surrounding community. By utilizing the resources available to us on the new property we have the chance to implement programs to help our church members, friends, and neighbors who may be facing food insecurity.  Through community collaboration and with the implementation of several new projects, we are working to ensure that no one in our community lacks access to local, nutritious, organic, and sustainably grown produce.   Through 4 primary areas of focus, we are helping to connect the church and community, to the land, ensuring access, and empowering community members to have a hand in their own food production.  The four primary focus areas include a CSA, (community supported agriculture), a Giving Garden, educational outreach programs, and a community garden.  Through these efforts, we can make a meaningful connection with our community and have an impact on our local food system.

CSA

We are designing a low-cost, nonprofit CSA which will be available to church members beginning in 2023.  By purchasing shares in the CSA at the beginning of the season, subscribers help to offset initial startup costs while securing their share of the season’s produce. By partnering with additional producers within the community, we can ensure that a variety of products are available to our customers in addition to what is being grown on the property. Whole and half shares will be available with weekly pickups at the church.

More information will be available soon.

Giving Garden, Harmony Grows

Giving Garden

The Goal of the Harmony Grows Garden has always been to get fresh food to those who need it most.  In that spirit a large section of our garden is dedicated specifically to the production of food for local donation.  Donations from this garden will be taken to the local food pantry for weekly distribution to the community.

Please contact us for more information on accessing the garden or making a donation.

Educational Outreach, Harmony Grows

Educational
Outreach

Our work isn’t just about producing food and getting it to those in need, it is about empowering people with the skills and education to become producers as well.  By providing outreach and workshops on basic, (and not so basic), techniques we can encourage responsible, environmentally responsible food production.  These workshops enable us to connect with our neighbors and share information, and of course, seeds.

More information will be available soon.

Community Garden, Harmony Grows

Community
Garden

Access to land and the ability to garden has become restricted to many in recent years.  We believe everyone should have the opportunity to grow food for themselves and their families.  By offering community garden plots to church and community members on a seasonal basis we can provide the opportunity for many people to reconnect with the land by growing their own food.

Please submit your community garden application online to become a part of our community garden.
