Grace Garden is a sustainable garden, growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers. We are a ministry of Davis United Methodist Church1620 Anderson Road, Davis, CA 95616.

Our goal is to give the produce to the hungry, to those living on the edge of our community, and to develop a stronger sense of community.  What a wonderful way to use our property; trading the weeds for fresh vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruit to feed the hungry.

Grace Garden began in 2009.  We are now providing  a wealth of fruits and vegetables over the summer. In 2016 we harvested 1,189 pounds of tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, green beans and cantaloupes. We also harvested smaller amounts of eggplant, carrots, peppers, Swiss chard, basil and other herbs. Our fruit trees produced 367 pounds of apricots, plums, pluots, nectarines and peaches.

2017 Harvest Totals so far:  1,175 pounds!

We distribute our harvest through our partnership with the Davis Korean Church to provide produce for the Friday's Harvest program and to Davis Community Meals.

Grace Garden is supported by church members, partnered with U.C.C.E. Master Gardeners and joined by people from the Davis community.  The garden has eight long beds, each 4'x50', 6 raised beds, a small fruit orchard, 3 demonstration beds and a large hoop house used for seed germination.

Our days are busy. Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays we tend the vegetables, build up the beds, spread bark chips and many other tasks.  In January we start planting seeds for the Annual Plant Sale and planting in the garden in the spring.
