Eden Project offers opportunities to provide fresh, organic, seasonal produce grown on our garden on our Freisman Rd. property to local area charitable organizations.
As our Garden hunkers down for it's winter nap, we are gearing up for some work to build new beds, fencing, a greenhouse, and lay irrigation and electrical so that we can nurture our awesome crops when they wake up for spring.

2016 END OF YEAR GARDEN TOTALS:
The Garden is now closed for the winter. We had a very successful season, and again we'd like to thank all who came out and donated their talents and hard work throughout the 2016 growing season.
As a team we managed to donate:
Beans 30.5 lbs / Berries 21 lbs / Cucumbers 103 lbs / Garlic 45 lbs / Leeks 8 lbs / Melons 82 lbs
Onions 12 lbs / Peppers 57.5lbs / Potatoes 59 lbs / Summer Squash 416.5 lbs / Tomatillos 26.5 lbs
Tomatoes 204.75 lbs.
Our grand total harvested was 1,123.5 lbs. That's 123.5 lbs more than we harvested in 2015!
The harvest went to feed those who need a little more help within our community at the South Hayward Parish Outreach Center and the the Alameda County Food Bank Satellite (at the Well Church in Livermore.)
In 2017 there will be lots of exciting things happening in the Garden. We'll be moving and that will give us the opportunity to have a large grow space and our own orchard. That's just a little of what is to come. Please stay tuned for how you can become a part of this amazing ministry!
