The Mitzvah Garden KC has been one of the community’s best examples of adhering to the principles of Tikkun Olam and bringing the community together for the purpose of making our world a better place. This concept is the tagline emblazoned on our log, “It takes a garden to grow a community.”

Providing Healthy Food Alternatives For Those Less Fortunate

Our Garden

At the present time, The Mitzvah Garden donates all of its produce (12,500 pounds in 2018) to area food pantries. The Mitzvah Garden is the only provider of locally grown fresh produce to these pantries which serve literally hundreds, if not thousands of needy families that have no food alternatives.

Understanding The Garden

Volunteer

We are a volunteer organization with no paid staff.  All of our planting, garden maintenance and harvesting is performed by garden volunteers.  We have been fortunate to have attracted a number of civic, social, philanthropic, religious and social service organizations that work in the Garden.

Who Benefits

Mitzvah Garden KC grows produce grown with sustainable and pesticide-free techniques. All of the food  is given away to local food pantries.  With the help of our many funders, sustainability and the concerns associated with our global/local footprint have been incorporated in garden since its inception.
