Sandi’s Garden – NOT USED

Bower Hill is participating as a satellite site for SHIM’s Boaz Fields. We have constructed our garden and done our initial planting. Volunteers are assigned each week to do watering and weeding.

Our first planting consisted of tomatoes, tomatillas, sweet and hot peppers, swiss chard and beans. As the vegetables ripen they will be picked and transported to SHIM. Additional plantings will occur during the summer. If you would like to get involved, please contact Steve Boisvert.

Welcome to Boaz Fields! Rooted in our desire to provide the families who use SHIM’s food pantries with fresh, healthy food choices, SHIM’s Boaz Fields gardens grow produce for distribution through the SHIM pantries.

In 2012, we planted a pilot garden plot (named “Boaz Fields” after the generous landowner in the book of Ruth) that yielded more than 1,500 pounds of fresh vegetables for our food pantries.

This year, we’re expanding the program to include three additional “satellite sites” – one at St. Joan of Arc Church, one at St. David’s Episcopal Church, and one at Bower Hill Community Church. Thanks to the enthusiastic participation of these two new partners, we look forward to providing our families with an even greater veggie bounty this year!
