Lawrence Community Gardens

“Our 10 acre garden is located on 46th Street, just east of Post Road.. We have partnered with Monarch Beverage located at 9347 Pendleton Pike, and The City of Lawrence to grow produce that will be donated back to the community through The Cupboard and The Sharing Place food pantries which are here in our neighborhood.

The food pantries currently have a huge amount of support from bigger corporations but there are times that the produce has already started to expire before they can receive and distribute the healthy fresh food to the community. Our gardens will ensure access to locally grown fresh food using organic practices that will be transported within 5 miles of the garden. The garden is located across the road from a senior living community and a huge church, where we will be able to donate hundreds of additional pounds of produce. We offer a “You Pick For Free” section in the garden for our friends and neighbors who are in need and able to pick for themselves.”
