About the Garden
The St. Philip's School and Community Center garden is now known as "Gwen's Garden," in memory of faculty member, the late Mrs. Gwendolyn Barjon. The garden provides fresh, organic vegetables to Aunt Bette's Community Pantry. Students, teachers, and volunteers plant and harvest these vegetables with the hopes of providing nourishment to those who would not otherwise have access to fresh, organic food.
Volunteer in the Garden
The task of keeping the garden in constant motion requires several hours of labor. In addition to planting and harvesting, the garden must be routinely maintained, and that's where you can help. Volunteers are needed to weed, plant, harvest, and perform any other duties which lend themselves to the upkeep and general beautification of the garden. Volunteer days are generally the first Saturday of the month, but we sometimes have opportunities available on other days.
