The 2017 growing season for The Bellevue Hospital’s (TBH) Community Garden is underway!
Now in its sixth year, the Community Garden project is a co-partnership between TBH and the City of Bellevue. All produce grown in the garden is donated to Bellevue Fish and Loaves and Clyde Backdoor Food Pantries to help feed the hungry in both communities.
With the help of several volunteers and Master Gardners, nearly three tons of produce has been grown and donated over the past six years.
There are three types of gardens that are part of the TBH Community Garden project: a large garden that consists of produce including green beans, wax beans, onions, asparagus, sweet potatoes, popcorn, squash, cucumbers, peppers, okra, eggplant, carrots, strawberries and a variety of lettuce and greens; a 12 x 12 foot demo box that is used to demonstrate how a small garden can be built at home and raise food for one family; and an herb garden.
We are always looking for volunteers to help weed the gardens to help them maintain health and growth.
If you are interested in volunteering, call 419.484.5421 for more information.
