The P.E.A.C.E. Garden is a ministry where people can serve IN the garden, give FROM the garden and show others HOW to do it.  Regardless of a person’s gardening experience or age, everyone has a place to serve.  

All of the fresh produce raised is given to families in need through our food pantry.  Currently, Saddleback Church serves 1600 families a month through our food pantry.  Our garden is 1700 square feet, we’re using a “raised bed gardening method” where we have 37 4’X4’ boxes which a variety of vegetables and herbs will be grown.  By gardening this way, we can show people how to grow a garden in small spaces. 

In conjunction with our P.E.A.C.E. plan both locally and globally, we’ll use this gardening method as a teaching tool on how to have a reproducible and sustainable garden.  We will have different types of soil representing indigenous regions around the world!   Our garden will be a "Green" project and organic, which is important as we model caring for our environment and encourage our community to as well.
