Our Campaigns

What We Believe In

We work to make a real change and positive impact on our school, community, and most importantly, our students.  We see our campaigns as collective efforts and tools for connecting and building a stronger community for the people of Hastings through the garden.

Everyone Counts

HMS Garden has built an environment of support and helpful resources to make sure that all members of the community can be a part of all that we do. Our success is driven by the hearts, minds, and souls of our community. Come and join us.

Student Centered

Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow. – Anthony J. D’Angelo

Students are the reason our garden exists. Our school, teachers, volunteers, and community members all believe in the power it has to make an impact on our student's lives. We are expanding the possibilities of education and providing opportunities for success.


Food Security

The Giving Table

The Giving Table is HMS Garden's answer to saving the community money, distributing HMS Garden produce, and offering local gardeners to share their excess produce. This will limit food waste, reduce food miles, and help others in Hastings become more food secure. We invite you to take produce you will use within two days and leave excess produce from your own garden. 

Feel free to wander the garden for herbs and flowers. Garden volunteers will harvest garden produce when it is ripe and ready. Please do not harvest peppers, squash, onions, melons, etc. as they might not be ready.


What's going on at the Garden?

We work hard to get our efforts noticed by the media and are so proud when the press covers our Garden. A well informed community is an empowered one, so take a look at some of the latest coverage we’ve received below and help spread the word.
