Yes, Warmland House Shelter has a garden! Located in the rear of the shelter located at 2579 Lewis Street is a large garden area, complete with raised beds, a horseshoe pit, a gazebo, barbecue and more. The garden at Warmland grows food that is prepared in the kitchen and served to residents. Extra food is canned and frozen for a later date, donated to the local food bank or to those that are marginally housed. Shelter residents are enlisted as volunteers in return for space to grow some of their own foods. The garden also serves as a quiet place for shelter residents to sit, reflect and heal.
Our goal for the Warmland Garden is to establish a series of fundraising events throughout the year to help the garden become self-sustaining. We are always in need of seeds, plants, shrubs, tools and we dream of purchasing benches, greenhouses and cold frames. Supporting our Blueberry Plant Sale will help us reach our goals.
How does it work?
