Eden's Blessing Community Garden

Eden’s Blessing Community Garden is an oasis in the middle of the community. This organic garden is a place where people are not only growing their crops, but bridging the gap between friends, family, and neighbors in the community. Come grow with us!

Eden’s Blessing is not just a community garden, but it’s an oasis in the middle of the community. This garden is a place where you can go and garden your latest crops or even sit and read a book under the tree of life in the middle of the garden. Eden's Blessing is also a wonderful area for you to watch various types of birds eat from the feeders and enjoy the bird baths. Eden's Blessing Community Garden is where you want to connect with neighbors, friends, and family. There is an immense opportunity to bring brightness out of the blight and decay in that neighborhood and we get to do that. Utilizing the garden portion helps us to touch the community with an impact of love, care, concern, and empowerment. In essence, we are helping to refuel and retool the spirit of community in a culture that has had to look out for itself.

Mission: Reasons to become involved with Eden's Blessing Community Garden: • Become healthier • Spend less time and money at the grocery store • Bring the community together • Bridge relationships through generational gaps • Bring brightness to the neighborhood • Eliminate the “Food Desert” • Empower the community to take care, provide, and sustain self
