A Lot to Grow
The Pope Francis Garden is a vegetable garden tended by St. Teresa Parishioners and is located behind Immaculate Conception Church. We are partnered with A Lot to Grow, a community garden organization design to grow vegetables and herbs for distribution to local food pantries, soup kitchens and non-profit senior residences in suburban Essex County, NJ. Most of our produce goes to our own Mary’s Pantry. We grow food and give it to the poor. If you would like to assist in this ministry, please contact the Parish Office.
