The Garden at Deer Run

Providing educational opportunities and farm-to-table food

Join Us in The Garden at Deer Run

No experience necessary (but if you’ve got it, we’ll put it to use!)

The Garden at Deer Run is the culmination of the passion and vision to provide farm-to-table fresh and healthy foods for our campers and retreat guests. 

The Garden at Deer Run uses sustainable gardening practices by composting, mulching, and exclusively using organic products for pest and disease control.

Become a Garden Sustainer

If you enjoy getting your hands in the dirt and tending to the garden, we would love to have you on our garden volunteer team! Work alongside Deer Run staff and other garden volunteers or take it to the next level and “adopt a plot” to plant, weed, and tend to with your kids, family, or friends. 

If you are interested in being a Deer Run Garden Sustainer, contact Cindy Welch.
