Planting Hope

Jackson Area Ministries Gardening Project helps people to help themselves.  We help persons who have lost their jobs, senior citizens, and low-income families.  In addition to seed potatoes and tomato plants, we collect and distribute beans (pole and bush), beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, corn, cucumbers, lettuce, pumpkins, radishes, spinach, squash, turnips, watermelon--just about anything that is hardy for zone 6.
