Garden Joy desires to cultivate healthy children, families, and community, by offering a space for children and families to have a hands-on garden experience. All of the produce grown is donated to local food pantries and schools.
Founded in 2016, Garden Joy was built to cultivate wellness and community through a hands-on garden program. Children who attend our program learn to garden by planting and harvesting produce to donate to local food pantries. In 2017-18 we donated over 800 pounds of produce to local food pantries in Stanislaus and San Joaquin counties. In 2020, we donated over 2,000 pounds of organic produce to our local community.
