Harvest Community Garden Dedicates Garden to Community written by Betty Ragland

  Harvest Community Garden Welcomes You

Shell Knob’s Harvest Community Garden is located on Hwy. YY on the west side of the Methodist Church in Shell Knob.  You are welcome to visit our location and tour the new Meditation Trail that was established last year by Eagle Scout, Michael Bernsen.

There are several opportunities for you to get involved with the community garden this year. 1) you may want to plant your own garden in one of the 16 individual beds that are available, 2) you may want to be involved in the collective gardens, or 3) you may just want to volunteer for one of several work and planting days.  

For individual beds, there will a choice of either a free-fee or dollar fee.  If you sign up for the watering/harvesting team, there will be no fee.  You can produce and harvest the crops you want for yourself from your bed.  Plus your crops will be watered by the watering team.  Or you may want to opt out of the “free fee” by paying $20 and being responsible for your own watering.

If you want to participate in growing crops for yourself and to give to the community you will want to be a collective gardener and be on the watering/harvesting team.  Applications are now available for both gardening opportunities by calling the Methodist Church office, 858-6707 or a leadership team member.

If you are interested in volunteering for smaller scale work opportunities you may want to join in on some of the upcoming work and planting days at your convenience.  The first volunteer work day is scheduled for March 17th at 10:00 a.m.  The first volunteer planting day is scheduled for March 24th at 10:00 a.m.  Both will be rescheduled due to inclement weather.  No application needed, just call a team member to let them know of your interest.

Last year the collective gardens produced over 1000 pounds of food that was distributed to the Senior Center, Alliance Food Pantry, and His House Foundation.  The gardeners also got to take home some of the potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cantaloupe, cucumbers, eggplant, kale, beets, and turnips.  In addition, the garden hosted three youth groups who participated in learning more about gardening activities.

The garden leadership team currently includes, Jeanette Cassidy, Betty Turner, Nancy Mallomo, Paula Andersen, Bill Kenagy, and Betty Ragland.  They are working to enhance the garden with a storage building, garden equipment and other supplies, and a rain-water storage watering system.  They would very much appreciate your help or monetary donations.

Leadership Team received an $826.00 donation from the Fraternal Order of Eagles in December 2017.
