Mission Benedict has partnered with Marion-Polk Food Share to build a community garden for Mount Angel’s residents with the hopes of bringing people together to learn about how to grow food sustainably. The garden is located just behind the St. Joseph Family Shelter and the raised beds will be available at no cost on a first come, first serve basis starting May 1, 2019.

This project wouldn’t have been possible without support from our partners: Mount Angel Knights of Columbus Council #1767, Abiqua Landscape of Silverton, Habitat for Humanity ReStore of Woodburn, Marion-Polk Food Share of Salem, Northwest Farm Credit Services, Columbia Bank, Kramer’s Nursery, Eder Farms and the Portland Nursery.

Help us Maintain the Garden

In 2022 our Young Professionals group came out and helped restore the garden.
