Share The Harvest Donations

First harvest update for 2019!

Last year we donated 2,219 pounds and since our inception in 2010 have donated a total of 15,903 pounds to CCA, AUMC Food Share and Metrocrest Services!

WE DID IT AGAIN – IN 2018!

The Giving Garden, Carrollton’s first community garden, celebrates its 2,000 pound donation milestone for 2018!  Year to date, the garden has donated over A WHOLE TON of fresh organic produce to Christian Community Action’s (CCA) food pantry and Aldersgate United Methodist Church’s Food Share.

Food Share volunteers deliver groceries once a month to senior citizens in need who live in our community; recipients are interviewed and selected by Metrocrest Services.

Since inception, the garden has donated over 7 ½ tons of fruit, herbs, and veggies to our neighbors!

Thanks to all our members and volunteers who contribute their time and energy (not to mention money), to make this happen. Good job!
