The All Souls Community Garden

It was started in the Spring of 2012 to grow fresh foods to donate to food banks in the Mechanicsville and Richmond area. 

Over the years, the garden has donated over numerous pounds of produce to MCEF: Mechanicsville Church’s Emergency Fund’s Pantry, Northside Baptist Church's Loaves and Fishes feeding program, the McShin Foundation, Hanover Evangelical Friends Church, Church Hill Wellness Center, Moments of Hope, and individuals in need. 

The garden is worked entirely by volunteers from All Souls Episcopal Church as well as friends and community organizations throughout the Richmond area.  For us this is more than just another outreach project.  By working in the dirt and trusting in God's abundance, we watch as tiny seeds and plants grow and thrive to become the nutrients that will feed souls in need. 


Each year, we begin and end our growing season with a community blessing, ever mindful that all we have is a gift from our creator. Though the work can be challenging on a 95 degree day, we find time to laugh with one another and celebrate the beauty of the harvest.  There is something special about our Community Garden at 9077 Atlee Rd in Mechanicsville.  Even on the hotest of days, the Holy Spirit seems to blown through and provide us a gentle breeze. We are incredibly thankful for those who volunteer, because many times the only fresh foods at the food banks is the food from The All Souls Community Garden.
