Jeremiah Gardens has received a grant from the City of Rockford Community Action Agency to improve our garden in the heart of the downtown area. Ours is a “pilfering” garden, allowing anyone who desires to pick fresh vegetables and enjoy the harvest. This year we will be partnering with Stepping Stones, Jubilee Center, and Harbor House guests. Our experienced gardeners will work alongside the clients of these agencies, teaching sustainable gardening skills and how to start their own gardens. We hope this will spark a lifelong love of growing food using sustainable gardening methods. We will be adding to our garden this year with a bed of pollinators to help beautify the downtown area.
