FOOD For ALL GARDEN
The Food for All Garden is located at 81 East Main Street, Clinton, Connecticut. The garden is an initiative of Our Community Cares, a 501 c3 organization formed by the Episcopal Church of the Holy Advent in Clinton, CT. In 2012 a design team was established to create and expand the garden.
The Food for All Garden is a community effort to grow organic vegetables, herbs and flowers for people in need on the Connecticut Shoreline. The Food for All Garden harvested 47,000 pounds of fresh produce in its first seven years.
All produce is contributed to a network of soup kitchens and food pantries in Clinton and neighboring towns. Food for All Garden is a non-profit organization which relies solely on volunteers to plant, grow the seedlings and harvest the vegetables, and the generosity of the community for donations.
The garden fosters learning about organic gardening and healthy eating, especially for the enrichment of young people and their families.
