Located on one-third of an acre on the University of Delaware’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) campus, the garden provides a steady stream of fresh vegetables, herbs and fruits to Delaware’s hungry.

During 2009 and 2010, the Garden for the Community produced more than three tons of fresh produce for the Food Bank of Delaware’s hunger-relief efforts. The hope is to have an even more bountiful harvest in 2011.

The Garden for the Community project is a partnership between the Food Bank of Delaware and the CANR faculty and staff, undergraduate students and graduate students.

The rain dates for the plantings are Friday and Saturday, May 20 and 21, taking place at the same times.
