Who We Are
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.
The first garden was planted and harvested in 2009. That year, approximately 1,500 pounds of produce were donated to the Supplemental Food Resource Center (SFRC). Today, The Garden of Giving continues its mission, serving all of Monroe County, through the support of local businesses and volunteers.
We have teamed with a variety of local agencies, businesses, churches, and schools to complete projects such as clearing land, installing fences, tilling 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.
