The purpose of OWC Community Gardens is to provide a place for members of the surrounding communities to come together to grow and harvest produce in a healthy and productive manner. Educational opportunities will be available to learn how to grow, harvest and prepare fresh fruits and vegetables with a focus on the economical, physical, emotional and spiritual benefits that come from gardening. A portion of the harvest is also donated to local food pantries.
