Common Good Garden

The Common Good Garden, a section of the Tom Settlemire Community Garden, is dedicated to growing fresh produce for Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program (MCHPP) and other local food security efforts. The Common Good Garden is run by a committed group of volunteer gardeners who show up with a passion for feeding the community.

In the first four seasons, the Common Good Garden produced over 9,420 pounds of fresh produce for MCHPP’s food pantry and soup kitchen!! Each year more than 100 volunteers dedicate over 400 hours to the Common Good Garden making this harvest possible.

In 2023, despite a tough growing season, the Common Good Garden grew and donated over 1,500 pounds of produce to MCHPP including carrots, onions, and winter squash. This incredible harvest is made possible by the hard work of volunteers and important member support.
