Impact Palmyra is a collaborative effort between the churches of Palmyra, The Caring Cupboard, and other community organizations and groups. Begun as a week-long church imitative centered on acting out of the love of Jesus through serving others in the community, Impact Palmyra continues to evolve as it seeks to best address the needs present and work towards sustainable community development.
This year, 2019, we will be join together to construct two community gardens. These gardens will consist of roughly 18 4’x8’ raised beds, outfitted with fencing, composting bins, a utility shed and rain barrels/water tanks.
The Community Gardens will serve two purposes:
To supply The Caring Cupboard with fresh produce throughout the year.
To offer Palmyra community members, especially those who are food insecure, the space and opportunity to grow their own produce by leasing out specific beds for you their use.
In the immediate future, these gardens will be able to supply The Caring Cupboard customers and others in our community with fresh produce. In the long-term, we hope to see these gardens become a rallying point for our community- a place where relationships are built, barriers are overcome, and where a variety of people have the opportunity to serve together and make a sustainable difference in Palmyra.
