Volunteers work in the Kitchen of Hope garden located at 130 West Charlemont Ave., adjacent to the Interfaith Hospitality Network.
Harvest of Hope Community Garden members and groups grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers. A portion of the food grown by organizations is donated to local food pantries and kitchens. Volunteers from the Master Gardner program are on hand after 10 a.m. at the garden most Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays to answer questions.
The garden was started in 2011 by the United Way of Greater Kingsport's Safety and Stability Vision Council to help address the availability of healthy food in the community. The garden is a partnership with United Way, AARP, First Presbyterian Church, City of Kingsport, UT Extension Office, and the East Tennessee Master Gardner's Society.
