The Nancy Hollywood Community Garden and Wellness Center at St. Paul’s is working to create a successful community model that addresses the increased demand in our county for food assistance, and renews an appreciation for our personal health and food sources. We offer volunteers and participants a hands-on way to learn sustainable gardening practices and help us grow fresh produce to support local hunger-relief agencies. Our garden and its community have blossomed over the past four years to include dedicated areas for rental plots, a children’s garden, an idea garden, compost center, two bee hives, and over twenty raised beds dedicated for food production. The garden partners with the Chester County Food Bank Gleaning Program, Penn State Master Gardeners, the Church Farm School, and The Brickman Group, as well as local schools, doctor’s ofﬁces, and businesses on various projects.
We invite you to join us for a day at the garden!
