The Food Garden

Help us grow fresh organic produce for the St. Martin de Porres Woman’s Shelter in Woodlawn and SPR’s Food Pantry. We meet in the garden on Saturdays 9-11am. All experience levels are welcome. For more information, contact George Chlipala:


Another Great Year in the SPR Garden- 2017
In 2017, together we grew and harvested 1230 lbs. of fresh produce that was distributed to both the St. Martin de Porres House of Hope, a non-profit recovery home for homeless women and their children who are affected by substance abuse (; and the SPR Food Pantry, which provides food to our neighbors in need.  Thanks again for everyone’s hard work this season and we look forward to next spring and the 2018 gardening season.
