Beatitude Gardens

Beatitude Gardens mission is to be a demonstration plot for small-scale, regenerative agriculture that educates young leaders, builds community, and increases food access in Todd and surrounding areas.  We have a vision to be a community that cares for the earth, cares for people, and shares the harvest. Under the leadership of the Community Garden Coordinator, we tend two plots of land in downtown Todd to feed neighbors in the High Country.  Using the principles of permaculture design at these locations, Beatitude Gardens brings a unique model of how churches can use their land to create healthy and productive “foodscapes,” and generate local food economy.

Under the leadership of the Community Garden Coordinator, we tend two plots of land in downtown Todd to feed neighbors in the High Country. We provide holistic, hands-on education through our internships, build community through volunteer work days, and demonstrate beauty and sustainability design and practice.
