Feeding The Hungry, One Plant At A Time

Garden Harvest Supply is excited to announce the launch of our service project to help alleviate hunger in our communities.

The idea behind our community service project can be summed up by the famous old saying: “If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime”.

Poverty exists all around us, including among some veterans and senior citizens. Churches and other organizations have started creating community gardens, and they often designate part of the garden as a place where needy people can learn to grow their own food. They give them a plot and teach them how to get started.

We are partnering with these types of community gardens and also with those whose main purpose is the donation of their harvest to the hungry, as well as with the community gardens that allow those with special needs to participate. Come harvest time, there are a lot of smiles all around, and plenty of good, nutritious veggies for people who really need the nourishment. And pretty soon after that, it’ll be planting time again.

We think this is a great idea, and we want to promote it. Therefore, Garden Harvest Supply is going to provide the plants for outreach programs at community gardens around the country. We have already started forming partnerships and are planning to do so with many more gardens in the future.

We love growing plants and we have always wanted to do something that will have a continuing positive impact on the world. We are very thankful that we have now found it, and we want to thank our esteemed customers for being a part of this. With your continued support of our business, you’ll be participating with us in feeding the hungry!

If you know of a community garden that could benefit from our plants, please email us at gardens@gardenharvestsupply.com

We appreciate your business!
