The Plowshares Community Garden provides the Plowshares Peace and Justice Center kitchen with fresh vegetables year-round.
Ground-breaking for the 1650 square foot garden began in March of 2009 with help from a Community Foundation of Mendocino County grant and support from The Gardens Project of NCO. Thanks to tremendous community support, the irrigation system, fencing, plant starts, compost and labor were all donated. Plowshares still receives free compost each Spring from Cold Creek Compost. We have 2 dedicated volunteers who work on the garden year round. Major crops are: tomatoes, beets, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, peppers, garlic, onions, squash, and sunflowers. The 4H club as two hives of bees in the garden now!
Everyone knows that when they need food, Plowshares is there.
