About the Garden
Shiloh Field welcomes and serves the community with 152 individual plots, fruit trees, blackberries, chickens, honey bees, a vineyard, composting and more. We provide fresh produce, eggs and fruit to fourteen different ministries and organizations! Volunteers are always needed to help with the various chores of the garden. It’s all about feeding those who are hungry.
We post all updates on our Facebook page during inclement weather and emergency situations. We also post ahead of time what we will be doing on each upcoming day. Follow us by clicking here to stay updated.
Open Year Round
There is always something to do at the garden throughout each season.
We welcome everyone!
Whether you have one hour or three, one day or more, there is a spot for you at the garden. We are a family friendly environment and there is no age requirements for volunteering. Ask God where He wants you to serve; we know you will be blessed!
What are the hours?
Volunteers are welcomed each week at 8am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We harvest Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 8am. You may sign up to volunteer by going here.
How do I start?
Just show up on the days and times we are at the garden! We ask that you wear clothes appropriate for outdoor activities. We provide drinking water.
What will I learn?
You will learn soil preparation, planting, take care of plants, watering, weeding, composting, sustainability, creativity in giving back to your community and so much more. We have short and long term opportunities for growing and serving. Come and learn with us!
In 2019, Shiloh Field is in its tenth year. In the first five years, we averaged over 20,000 pounds
of food a year. It all began in 2009 and is based on Matthew: 14-16 where Jesus said “Feed my people. “ We average over 500 volunteer hours a month. If we had more volunteers we could produce more food to feed more people!
