Mission and Impact
The Bethel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church Ardmore Community Garden was started in 2018 by Reverend Carolyn Cavaness, Trellis for Tomorrow, and congregation members. Our guiding purpose was to make fresh, healthy vegetables more accessible to neighborhood residents.
As of Spring 2022, approximately 4,000 pounds of produce have been harvested from the garden and distributed to local food pantries and neighborhood residents at no cost.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, community gardeners launched the Ardmore Victory Gardens program, which now supports over thirty local families and organizations in growing their own food by providing building materials, seedlings, and maintenance support for a network of small Victory Gardens in the neighborhood.
Ardmore Victory Gardens is a nonprofit organization, which means we need your help to continue growing! If you believe in our mission and wish to support us, please donate today. All donations are tax deductible.
Join us on the 1st Saturday of every month, May-October, from 11 am- 1 pm to volunteer in our garden! All workdays are followed by a free farm stand. All ages and experience levels are welcome!
