Garden of Hope

 


In the Spring of 2012, in partnership with the Life Resource Centre, the Garden of Hope Community Garden was officially opened! The 2-acre garden is an urban farming initiative that is focused on meeting the nutrition, health, and employment needs of members of refugee immigrant families. The Garden of Hope not only provides people with an opportunity to grow food from their home countries, but also provides an affordable, healthy source of fresh fruits and vegetables.

For years, we as a church have been trying to sell this land.
Turns out, God had other plans.
