The Mission Farm at St. John’s Lutheran Church was launched in 2009 with the mission to supply the Napa County Food Bank, county residents and other charitable organizations with fresh, nutritious produce that is locally and organically grown.
We are a major contributor of fresh food to the food bank.
The Mission Farm is applying once again to participate along with many other non-profit organizations serving the community in the Napa Valley Give!Guide 2022 10th Anniversary campaign.
Organic tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapenos, cabbages, broccoli, beets, corn, onions, garlic, summer and fall squash, carrots, are among the current plantings. These vary by year and season. In 2012 and 2013 we added various fruit trees to the mix. Peaches, plums, pluots, apples and apricots are all producing well.
Come join us-no experience necessary!
Volunteers do all of the hands-on work of running the Mission Farm including tilling, soil amending, planting, weeding, and harvesting to name just a few.
We love building relationships with individuals and community groups who care about sustainable agriculture and about hunger & nutrition. Our volunteers come from St. John’s Lutheran Church and School and include many other caring, community-minded folks. “We are enjoying a special partnership with the Young Farmers and Ranchers organization!”
Each year workers spend over 4000 hours on the farm, helping to fulfill its mission.
There are workers out there every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday morning from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM.
Work gloves and a good sun hat are a good idea if anyone wants to help out. We provide water, but encourage you to bring your own water from home in your own container. Helps save the earth from plastic waste.
