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!

 

History

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!
