Our mission is to provide organic fresh produce to those in need in our community of Chester County. The St. Matthew's garden is a small space in the overflow parking area which houses twelve raised 3x10 garden beds. It is a Chester County Food Bank site and it is organic. Three beds are dedicated to the Food Bank and/or The Lord's Pantry and nine beds are rented by church members.
The Food Bank provides seeds and seedlings for their three beds to be nurtured and harvested for the food bank. This fresh organic produce is then given to our neighbors in need of healthy food to feed their families. Each renter participates in the care of the beds.This year we have donated over 240 pounds of produce from the garden to the Lord's pantry.
