Our Story

2016

MAY

While serving at my church The Journey, a man caught my eye. I tried to catch him on his way out, but I wasn't able to. On my way home, I saw him and a friend on the side of the road and I pulled over. I found out they were homeless and just trying to get back on their feet. We prayed with them, and a few hours later, we were back with food and necessities.

 A few weeks later I met with the Outreach Ministry Team at The Journey and I told them of this idea to have a garden that could feed those who needed it most. The first try at the garden was a failure, no volunteers and all my crops died. At the time I wanted to give up, but knew I owed it to myself and The Journey to make this work. In the following months, we worked on growing and harvesting winter vegetables, some in the gardens and some from my basement with grow lights. This was our humble beginnings!
