Below is a thank you from the Atlantic City Rescue Mission and some pictures of the wonderful food that is made with our donated produce.
As the growing season winds down, we realize that we could not have donated as much produce as we did without the help of all who volunteered.
Thanks to all our volunteers, without you, none of this would have been possible!
The Rooted in Love Vegetable
Garden exists for the purpose of growing produce for area food pantries and distribution sites who help feed food insecure individuals in
Atlantic City and Pleasantville. Volunteer gardeners are OHPC members and/or friends who plant, maintain, and deliver the produce to designated sites.
Here's How It Works: Weekly
emails are sent to volunteers indicating what garden work is needed during that week. If you are able and available, simple reply to the email that you can help. No reply needed if it’s not the job for you. Here are some of the things volunteers can help with: •placing soil and compost in the raised beds•assisting with composting•growing
seeds from home•planting • watering •weeding •harvesting•delivering the produce to the distribution sites
NOTE: Two of the 12 raised beds are chair height to assist with planting
The garden is located behind our building just off the back of our parking lot, and is enclosed by a fence.
