Anathoth Community Garden & Farm

Anathoth’s garden, now grown to a farm, began as a response to a murder that brought to light divisions in the community. Anathoth’s mission is to cultivate peace by using good food and sustainable agriculture to connect people with their neighbors, the land, and God. Anathoth’s core production program is HarvestShare, a sliding-scale, 180-member CSA (Community Supported Agriculture program). We also host weekly community potlucks and workdays every Saturday from March-October. We equip young people with farming and community-building skills through young adult internship and apprenticeship programs, through our Open Hands paid summer internship for teens, and through our partnership with Volunteers for Youth.
