Good Faith Community Garden

The Good Faith Community Garden is located on land donated by Faith United Church of Christ at the corner of Loop 337 & Common St. in New Braunfels, TX.

The Good Faith Community Garden (GFCG) is a proof-of-concept garden for the New Braunfels Community and Comal County, serving as a living, dynamic, and ever-growing example of what local food systems can look like when matched to the needs of the local community.

As this GFCG develops, we hope to inspire similar projects in other parts of our community, eventually reaching a time when every neighborhood has a community garden within walking distance, where neighbors can grow healthy food for their families, learn and practice new skills, and connect with friends and neighbors in real and tangible ways.

PROJECT GOALS: * To GROW FOOD for those members of our community who are in need. * To EDUCATE our community, both young and old, about the benefits of organic gardening and provide opportunities to gain real hands-on experience in a variety of methods * To INSPIRE more people in our community to put their hands in the dirt and experience the miracle of life from seed to harvest * To PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES for COMMUNITY CONNECTION and involvement on important local issues, like: energy, the environment, poverty, hunger, and other related causes.
