As you drive down Chapman Avenue between Victoria and Raymond, there has been a peculiar collection assembling on the north side of the street. In 2014, St. Andrews Episcopal Church removed the sod from their front parcel, creating anticipation for what was to come. During the summer, a shipment of small boats arrived and were quickly dispatched by volunteers in the church to become container gardens, all part of a master plan to have a well-planned agricultural garden to produce food for the hungry in the community.
Pathways of Hope was present to help dedicate the garden and is one of the recipients of the produce that comes from those boats.
As one volunteer said, “It is really exciting to see children handling these fresh vegetables– carrots with the dirt still clinging to them or lettuce that is greener than what they would see a supermarket– because I know that they are eating healthy and not just eating.”
