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.

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.
