In 2021, St. Andrew’s Garden of Hope produced and donated 3,694 lbs. of fresh organic vegetables for local food banks. We set a new garden record! The old record was set in 2019 at 3,011 lbs.

Our heartfelt thanks go to Ted and Anne Edwards, and Dave and Doris Smith for their tireless commitment to providing fresh, organic produce to our community. Their gardening expertise as well as their leadership enabled volunteers of all experience levels and ages to participate in this important ministry. We are also grateful to Dr. Susan Agolini for coordinating Marymount University student volunteers and to Becky Halbe for helping distribute the produce through Rock Spring UCC.

See you in March 2022.
