EarthShare Gardens in Scott is a great place for you to give back to the community through community gardening.
EarthShare Gardens have donated vegetables to the community since 2005. They are a 501c-3 organization, so any donations are tax-deductible
We produce high quality, chemical free, naturally grown fruits and vegetables. We leverage the demand for local organic produce to grow and donate healthy food to those who are most in need. We provide educational and inspirational experiences to the youth and adults of our community. - EarthShare Gardens
