Keystone Mission is in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. HOPE is found HERE!

Day of Planting Sprouts New Beginnings in Scranton 

Scranton, PA – Guests, volunteers, and staff gathered to sow the fruits of their labor on May 31 to celebrate a day of planting for the Seeds of Hope Community Garden.   

This joyous occasion marked a milestone in the program’s journey to benefit the Scranton community by providing access to healthy foods, the ability to cultivate new relationships, and the promotion of fellowship among neighbors.   

The success of this day wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of numerous other volunteers who selflessly contributed their time and energy.  

“This has been a culmination of a lot of hard work and over six weeks of planning,” said Michael McAllister, a Seeds of Hope volunteer. McAllister donated numerous hours and resources to make the project possible.  

“This is going to be great!” Reggie, a guest from Keystone Mission’s Pathfinder Vocational Program, eagerly joined in the planting activities. His excitement mirrored the anticipation shared by all participants, especially those facing homelessness.  

Seeds of Hope represents an opportunity for personal growth and self-sufficiency. By actively participating in the planting process, individuals like Reggie become not only recipients but also contributors to the garden’s success. 

Keystone Mission thanks those who generously donated time and resources for creating a successful start to the Seeds of Hope Community Garden. We recognize and thank Benny’s of Greenridge, Mr. Mulch, members of LCBC Church, and Youth for Christ. Furthermore, we would like to thank the Penn State Master Gardeners, Marcia Fricke and Gary White, who provided valuable expertise and guidance to the Seeds of Hope program. We also thank the Scranton Area Community Foundation for their funding efforts in this project.
