Community Garden

Community Garden

The mission of our Community Garden is to make healthy food available, affordable, and enjoyable to a community plagued by homelessness and great need. We intend to create an environment where families can learn to grow, cook, and enjoy meals together.

Started by members of the Pryor Leadership Studies Program at William Jewell College, the garden was officially opened in April of 2013. The garden features 24 raised beds with varying produce, fruit trees, herbs, a water fountain fixture, and a gourd house pergola. In addition to planting and harvesting fresh fruits and vegetables, the renovation of Hope Faith’s T1 women’s housing will include a community training kitchen where cooking classes will be offered to the public.

Garden Hours: Saturdays, 9-11am

The garden is open to the public every Saturday from 9am-11am. During the harvest season, the garden will be open for harvest from 9am-11am on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Hope Faith Ministries has a Pay What You Can policy for receiving produce from the garden, but a donation of $15 is suggested.
