Shining Light Garden

A non-profit organization that has been growing fresh vegetables for over 10 years to help feed the homeless, hungry and forgotten. Our focus is strictly on growing and giving for God's glory.

All donations go to farm improvements and operations.
Join us in our fight against nutritional proverty.

Shining Light Garden was started by Joel Bray in 2008. What began as a backyard project quickly expanded into a 20+ acre farm. Since then Joel's passion for farming has grown thousands of bushels of food to help feed the hungry.

All vegetables are given to local food pantries, soup kitchens, veteran organizations, and senior programs - providing food to families in need.

The garden also grows beautiful flowers for VNA Hospice House and supplies Miracle Fruit to help those who are going through chemo therapy to help them through their healing process. This fruit also helps anyone whose food has lost their flavor.

We have recently planted over 250 mango and avocado trees to supply fruit along with our vegetables.  

It is our vision to join together in unity with the body of Christ to make an impact in our community, and to have compassion for others as Jesus did. The only person we desire to exalt is Jesus Christ.
100% Volunteer, 100% Donations, 100% Giveaway.
