It is a privilege to be a part of the GGP. I am continually amazed at the level of involvement and commitment from the community and other organizations. I have truly enjoyed the work and getting my hands dirty, but most of all it's the people that make the difference. It is great to meet new people each week and to know that we are all working to help other people in need.
As we look forward to the future of the GGP, I am really excited about some of the upcoming project and the additional food we will be able to produce using natural resources.

My 13yr son and I have volunteered for the Generous Garden Project since April 2011. We have worked through the hot SC summer and have not missed a single weekend!
For years I have given "non-perishables" to organizations with a bit of apprehension knowing that the canned veggies are loaded w/
sodium and preservatives.

Sugar Diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure are illnesses that disproportionally affect poor people, I've ofter wondered how are we perpetuating their ill health with our "good works" of giving.

Working in the Generous Garden lets me contribute to the poor in a wholesome, life giving, nourishing way!

May God Bless the vision, the leaders, and the hands in the Garden.

The Generous Garden Project allows me to help in the community while I am fully employed elsewhere. Serving time is flexible; I can participate to the extent i am able while still keeping my family and work responsibilities. There are ample opportunities for planting, maintaining, and harvesting in the community garden. In addition, there are gleaning opportunities, and many "behind-the-scenes" tasks that can be done from home. It is a worthwhile service opportunity that can fit into anyone's schedule.

The Generous Garden Project is one of the most unique non-profits in Greenville, SC and is doing great work to connect healthy foods to those who would otherwise be without. The Generous Garden is a conglomerate of families, professionals, students and internationals who all come together for a common cause: to fight hunger in a slightly different way by growing and gleaning food for those in need. As this non-profit continues to grow, it will soon revolutionize the way food is grown for the hungry, the poor, the underserved, the widowed and the lowly. I am blessed to be a part of this organization.

I've personally spent multiple morning gleaning with this organization in the fertile Upstate of SC. We've salvaged entire fields of that would have otherwise rotted and donated it to relief organizations across the county. I've witnessed the joy fresh produce can be for those who don't know where their next meal may come from (if at all).

The Generous Garden Project has set its goals high. I've seen us accomplish a LOT in the beginning months, but we need to focus on capitalizing on our available land and resources before we consider further expansion. We still have to find that balance between dreams and reality, while always pushing the cuff on expectations.

Our family looks forward to Saturday mornings...a chance to meet new volunteers and work together at the garden-harvesting, planting, preparing soil, tending to plants, socializing, and ultimately GIVING. We grow to give fresh produce to others in need. Our hearts are to be a vital part of giving life and hope to those experiencing difficult times.

delivering fresh produce to several area organizations as well as individual families in need. I've read multiple email testimonies and thank you cards as well.

like to see more money raised to be able to grow life-giving, nutrient rich foods during the winter months via greenhouses.
