Products That Give Back

In addition to offering organic produce through our farm and CSA, we also develop a variety of unique gifts and handmade crafts produced by the people in the employment training program. All proceeds go towards supporting the Homeless Garden Project and our programs. You can get a preview of some of the products here or come stop by one of our stores! We also sell select products in New Leaf Community Market and other local stores. We can't do this without you! Our partnership with our dedicated community of customers, volunteers, and donors is key to our success.
