The Buckingham Township Community Garden started growing in 2012 thanks to the extraordinary effort by many dedicated volunteers and residents who maintained their individual plots. Food is donated to the Jesus Focus Ministry of Southampton, which struggles to feed over 800 people and gets very little support.

The New Britain Borough Community Garden began in 2013 for residents wishing to grow for their own use but also as part of a contribution to the New Britain Food Larder. This is an all-organic garden!

Founded in 2012, Hope of the Harvest is a community garden on the Delaware Valley University campus sponsored by Del Val, Opportunity Council and Philabundance. The garden’s inaugural year yielded 15,000 pounds of fresh vegetables that went directly to Buck’s County’s pantries in the Food and Nutrition Network (FaNN), which served Bucks County’s families in need.
