Community Garden & Orchard

The Auburn Seventh-day Adventist Church has it’s own garden and orchard which provides healthy food options for the community. The orchard is in a 80’ X 100’ fully fenced area with 29 assorted fruit trees and 200 running feet of berry bushes. Harvests from our community garden and orchard are given to our Adventist Community Services clients. Excess harvests are shared with Interfaith Food Pantry, other families in need, and our church family.
We are always looking for help in the garden and the orchard. If you would like to volunteer either once a week or multiple times a week, please contact the church office (530.885.4232) and we would love to help get you started.

A Video on our Church Garden Produced Back in 2011

Auburn Community Garden from NAD Adventist on Vimeo.

“What if instead of just feeding the homeless we gave them an opportunity to grow their own food?” That driving question forced the Community Services of Auburn Seventh-day Adventist church re-examine their highly successful homeless ministry. For years they fed and clothed those living on the margins of Auburn, but what if they could offer an opportunity for the homeless to give back to the community? That vision eventually lead to the Auburn Community Garden, a one acre plot that produces tons of produce for the Auburn community. Watch this documentary and get to know Moss, the master gardener; Cyrus, Vey and Ryan, the apprentice gardeners; Steve, the logistics guy, and others as they face unforeseen external and internal obstacles on their way to realizing the dream of a vegetable garden fertilized by faith.

This video was produced by the NAD Church Resource Center in partnership with Adventist Community Services and first appeared on Pastor's DVD Volume 17.
