Over 3 acres of organic market gardens are under cultivation at Providence – vegetables are grown to sell in the store, and at the farmer’s market – and to supply the daily soups that are served for lunch. Participants have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of growing – from planning, to seeding, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, and making the soup!
More than just plants grow in our Gardens – people grow. In our gardens, people with varying abilities grow the vegetables, herbs, and flowers which we sell. By growing our plants together, we grow together – people grow in confidence and experience, their self esteem and self worth grow, and they blossom. Group activities promote socialization and allow participants to work together for a common goal. Energy and anxiety can be released through digging, hoeing and pruning.
We use Providence Farm Produce because our customers deserve the very best! Luke Harms, The Masthead Restaurant
