The Nice Roots Farm and Garden Center at the SHARE Food Program serves as a demonstration garden for urban growing techniques, a source of local, chemical free, and affordable produce to the SHARE community, a source of free produce to SHARE Food Program affiliated soup kitchens, and a resource center for urban growers.
Last year, we harvested more than 6,000 pounds of vegetables, half of which was donated to soup kitchens. The remaining produce is sold on site or included in our Farm To Families package.
The garden center supplies urban growers with the lumber, soil, compost, plants, and seeds needed for starting a raised bed garden. These materials are available at the lowest possible price to make gardening more affordable and accessible to the lower income community.
