The main teaching garden is located at 4743 East Ave., behind the Asbury Church. Fertile GroundWorks grows 15,000 to 20,000 pounds of nutritious food to give to neighbors every year, while teaching volunteers how to sustainably grow food for themselves and their families.

So far this year, Fertile GroundWorks has been able to share more than 12,000 pounds of food with the community. To continue improving the food security of neighbors in need, they are asking for support.
