Your Open Hands Foodbank Garden

If you haven’t stopped by the Open Hands Food Bank Garden at St. Christopher’s lately, I urge you to have a look. Open the gate and inside you’ll find fresh produce springing up. The terraced planting beds are full of tomato plants, snow peas, numerous squash plants, even some corn, various herbs and a very robust rhubarb plant!

Thanks to the hard work of lead gardeners Bill Hanna and Tucker Smyth this past fall, winter and especially this early spring, with great support from John Nistler and others, the garden has a few new features this year with a drip irrigation system and two large raised planting beds. These beds are already full of beautiful leafy greens, lettuces, chard, kale, about ready for harvest. Once early crops are harvested, we’ll be replanting summer crops. 

Everyone is invited, we welcome your help in planting and cultivating a bountiful harvest from our Food Bank Garden. 

Come out and enjoy digging in the garden!
