IMPACT PALMYRA 2019

Impact Palmyra is a collaborative effort between the churches of Palmyra, The Caring Cupboard, and other community organizations and groups.

This year, we will be joining together to construct two community gardens. These gardens will consist of roughly 18 4’x8’ raised beds, outfitted with fencing, composting bins, a utility shed and rain barrels and/or water tanks.

These community gardens will serve two purposes:

  1. To supply the Caring Cupboard with fresh produce throughout the year.
  2. To offer Palmyra community members, especially those who are food insecure, the space and opportunity grow their own produce, by leasing out specific beds for their use.

In the immediate future, these gardens will be able to supply Caring Cupboard customers and others in our community with fresh produce. In the long-term, we hope to see these gardens become a rallying point for our community—a place where relationships are built, barriers are overcome, and where a variety of people have the opportunity to serve together and make a sustainable difference in Palmyra.

If you are interested in serving during the May 1-4 “build” week or during one of the many garden maintenance days throughout the year, please fill out the following form:
