Your church, fitness facility, business or local group AND especially individuals can start a garden ministry in your community. You can bring the benefits of vigorous outdoor exercise, fresh flavorful organic nutrition and spiritually strengthening fellowship and conversation to your area. Get started today!


Today more than ever before people understand that physical fitness and good nutrition are key to a healthy and vibrant lifestyle. You already know that most of the foods commercially available in grocery stores throughout the United States and beyond can dramatically lack the nutritional value that you can get from locally raised organic foods. When you grow it you not only know what you're eating, you put in the exercise - the vigorous gardening and get the added benefit of outdoor conversation and fellowship with others who join you.  This is living as God intended and it is within your grasp to start a garden ministry in your community.
