  • Description:
    Sophia Garden is a community-supported agricultural (CSA) project of the Sisters of St. Dominic, providing organically grown vegetables to garden members and needy families in the community. CSA members share responsibility with the farmer for the cost and success of the garden. In return they share in the bounty of the harvest.At Sophia, we get an abundance of wonderful vegetables. We also get our hands dirty harvesting carrots, pulling weeds, turning the compost, helping the farmer however we can. We have parties and share recipes, publish newsletters and organize fundraisers. The garden has a rich agricultural and spiritual legacy. The Dominican Sisters have lived on this land since 1875 and farmed it for much of that time. The garden was named in honor of a special Dominican sister named Sophia who loved the earth and lived her life caring for it. Sophia is also the name given in the scriptures to the feminine face of God, the incarnation of wisdom. The work of the farm connects us to that wisdom.
