About this project
The partnership between Urban Mission Cabinet Inc. (UMC Inc.), The Crisis Ministry and the Isles org. has created the Bethany House of Hospitality (BHOH) Community Garden.
The funding raised will assist in creating vertical walls for additional growing of fruits and expansion of the growing season by adding coverings for the raised beds.
UMC Inc. the overseer of the BHOH and the BHOH Community Garden, is committed to community development and economic empowerment in various forms in the cities of Trenton & New Brunswick New Jersey. The BHOH Community Garden will become a space that serves the community by offering locally grown organic fruits and vegetables which are distributed through the food service program of the Crisis Ministry, an open space for educational programming provided by the Isles org. and outdoor gatherings to view original art.
The BHOH Community Garden is one of the 40+ gardens in the Isles network and will benefit from the 30 years of experience in urban agriculture by Isles.
Crisis Ministry operates a 3 location county-wide free food service program that serves hundreds of customers in Trenton NJ.
Besides growing produce the garden will function as a multi-purpose space with programing centered around "urban agriculture".
In the Capital City of Trenton NJ behind the Bethany House of Hospitality. The exact address is 426 Hamilton Ave. Trenton NJ 08610.
The harvest from this garden will be distributed to the local community through the Crisis Ministry food service program, also known as a food pantry.
