In 2012, The Salvation Army and the Tallahassee Sustainability Group of Tallahassee, Florida joined forces to create a community garden in an effort to fight poverty and hunger. Their vision is to help families in need to grow their own food, help provide The Salvation Army with fresh produce for the food pantry boxes and to help families learn new skills to gain self-sufficiency.
The garden was originally located in a little corner of land behind a local Salvation Army Family Stores and has since expanded to create more opportunity for the public to get involved.
The Tallahassee Sustainability Group has become a tremendous partner in The Salvation Army’s fight against hunger and has taken strides in educating the public about food and agriculture, increasing accessibility to fresh, healthy, food, and strengthening communities by means of urban farming.
This wonderful program is in the process of expanding to other locations.
