How much do you love fresh produce? You're not the only one! Please help support Lott's Community Garden! This dynamic community garden helps to feed those who would otherwise go without! A small donation goes a long way.

Or click here to donate online. 

Lott’s Community Garden is a growing /educational facility where America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend is not only able to provide the freshest of produce of for those in need but also offer an important educational experience to students in the region to learn where food actually comes from.  Funding for this operation mainly comes from local donations.  

Our goal this year is to distribute 20,000 pounds of fresh produce from the garden.  At an average production cost of $.15 a pound our annual budget is around $3000.  

$10 = 67 lbs of food = 56 meals
$25 = 167 lbs. of food = 139 meals
$50 = 333 lbs. of food = 278 meals
$100 = 667 lbs. of food = 556 meals
Twenty dollars can mean enough diesel to plow a field or enough seeds to plant an acre of greens.
