The Community Garden

The Community Garden is over 7,600 square feet, centrally located in downtown Westminster.  All of the produce and herbs harvested directly benefit our low-income community. HSP mobilizes the community to plant, maintain and harvest produce. Produce is distributed via area soup kitchens, food pantries, HSP’s Shelters, and Second Chances.

Partners Include: The City of Westminster, Carroll County Public Schools, Lowe’s Home Improvement, Grace Lutheran Church, McDaniel College, Target, Change, The Arc, Goodwill, The Stone Soup Foundation, and Manchester Baptist Church
