Our Values:

The Red Shield Community Garden strives to meet human needs in Jesus Christ's name without discrimination through three avenues:

  1. Empowering the Williamsport community by providing the opportunity to plant, grow, and harvest their own produce
  2. Educating individuals and families about the value of gardening
  3. Donating the abundance of vegetables to local non-profit entities in the community. 


Our Purpose

Besides adding beautification in a local neighborhood, community gardens offer educational opportunities, produce for food pantries and soup kitchens, and increased long term, tangible solutions to poverty. With the proper planning and partnerships, a community garden is an ideal resource for equipping lower income residents with a tool to build pride and empower them to make significant changes to their personal situation.
