You can grow your own food. We can help.

Knox Prairie Community Garden

Our community garden is an out-reach project of the already established Knox Prairie Community Kitchen. KPCK serves meals twice a month to local families who have had their food safety compromised by the economy. We serve between 150-200 dinners on a bi-monthly basis. We started our garden last summer and used the fresh produce to support our kitchen effort, which is to provide a hot and nutritious meal to Knox County's most needy twice a month. We also sent fresh produce to local needy families delivered by garden volunteers. Our plan is to expand the garden, plant an herb bed, fruit trees and fruit bearing vines. We are planning an effective compost area to augment our already healthy and vibrant soil.
