The Gardens at Hospitality House FRESH! LOCAL! HEALTHY!
The Gardens at Hospitality House were created to increase access to fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs for the Bread of Life Community Kitchen as well as the Food Box Program run by the Hospitality House. Residents and Volunteers work together to maintain the gardens throughout the summer. The garden is grown using organic methods in mostly raised beds and is a key part of the Hospitality House’s commitment to the sustainability of life, community and environment.
The garden project was initiated in 2011 with funding from the Appalachian District Health Department. With this funding 28 composite decking raised beds were constructed and filled in two separate gardens, the Upper Courtyard Garden and the Lower Lot Garden. With support from the community the gardens will continue to flourish and provide healthy meals for those in the greatest need.
