About the Garden of Giving

According to their website, The Garden of Giving is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization located in Saylorsburg, PA, which cultivates high-yield produce and provides fresh eggs for local food banks in Monroe County. Founded in 2008 by Tammy Graeber, the harvests from our 3.5-acre plot are for the benefit of low-income residents who qualify for and rely upon food banks for their basic food needs. Teaming with a variety of local agencies, businesses, churches, and schools, The Garden of Giving has completed numerous projects such as clearing land, installing fences, tilling the soil, planting, weeding, harvesting, and distributing vegetables and eggs to food bank facilities. These efforts enable The Garden of Giving to grow and cultivate a variety of fresh and nutritious produce, such as beans, corn, cucumbers, zucchini, onions, garlic, and tomatoes.

The Garden of Giving’s mission uses a 3 tiered approach: 

  • To provide high-quality vegetables and eggs for Monroe County food bank facilities.
  • To provide programs and services that add to the quality of life for residents of Monroe County.
  • To enhance the awareness and importance of using vegetables for health, through special events and educational programs.
