So that we all may thrive
Heartbeat Gardens is a 501(c)3 non-profit farm.
We are responding to the immediate needs of local food insecurity by donating all of our organic produce to food pantries.
We are working towards the long-term health of our community and ecosystem by teaching others how to grow food and herbal medicine in this habitat using methods that support a vital ecosystem for generations to come.
This 2020 growing season – 20 harvests – Heartbeat
has donated 7588 lbs. of organic produce
from our gardens to our local food pantries.
(updated: October 20, 2020)
We offer educational classes and workshops on sustainable agriculture, ecology, herbal medicine, and other healing arts practices.
(We are currently developing our ability to offer classes virtually due to current gathering restrictions)
Heartbeat hosts a Community Supported Apothecary. Members receive monthly hand-crafted, care packages from the herbal medicine gardens.
In addition, over the years we have come to know that being in the garden and at the table together is a healing pathway from the root up. We remember our belonging through this communal care of one another and our living landscape.
We are responding to food insecurity in our region by donating all our fresh, organic produce to our local food pantries, while also working towards a long-term vision of a strong local food economy accessible to all.
