The CMG Vegetable and Rose Gardens were started in 2011 with the primary mission of being a teaching, demonstration and learning facility. The Vegetable Garden hosts educational classes, demonstrations and test trials to support that mission. During its first season, the Vegetable Garden produced about 1,100 pounds of fresh produce, all of which were donated to local food banks and pantries.
The Vegetable Garden grows vegetables year-round, supporting its primary mission and its secondary, assisting the local food banks/pantries. The Vegetable Garden now produces between 6,000 and 7,000 pounds of vegetables annually.
Workdays are a great day to visit the AEGC Vegetable/Rose Garden as volunteer workers will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
In March of 2017, a 10×12 greenhouse was donated to the Vegetable Garden by CMG members Mike and Donna Welch. The greenhouse donation allowed the development of a Propagation Team to provide seedlings for the Vegetable Garden and other CMG programs. The team produces over 2,200 viable transplants annually to support CMG projects.
The CMG Rose Garden was also created in 2011 when EARTHKIND® rose bushes were planted. The roses were purchased through donations from CMG members in memory of a loved one.
