Our Big Garden
One out of every SIX children in the U.S. is at risk of hunger. For African-American and Latino children, it's one in three.
Big Garden donated just over 1500 pounds of produce to Just Food in 2021. Nice work Big Gardeners!
The Big Garden is a United Methodist Ministry
Whose goal is to reduce hunger by increasing access to fresh, healthy produce and teaching people to grow, cook, & preserve their own!
The Big Garden has helped to establish
more than 170 community gardens in urban and rural communities throughout Nebraska, Kansas, and Southwest Iowa
