Farming 4 Hunger's Market Garden

farming 4 hungerThe new market garden on the Prince Frederick Campus lawn, a partnership between CSM and Farming 4 Hunger (F4H), will provide a "'planting of the seed' to harvest" experience that provides food for the region’s hungry and teachable moments in self-sufficiency, team building, service leadership, volunteerism, and finding purpose.
