Stewardship Sundays

You can find us in the garden Sundays throughout the year. Join us for planting, harvesting, building healthy soil, weeding, mulching, and more. Drop by (between 9-1 summer months / 10-2 cooler months) and any of our volunteers will be happy to fill you in on the goals for the day.

Events Help

A lot goes into planning and pulling off a community event - work yes, but also lots of fun! We are always looking for people with energy and a love of community to help with event activities and set up/break down. Food, music, art & the company of awesome humans - what’s not to love?!


There are always projects on the calendar to keep Manheim Gardens growing and welcoming our friends and neighbors. Projects like: repainting the chicken coop, building raised beds, replacing the greenhouse plastic on the hoop house...and working to bring our dream of the Garden House community center into being.

Buy Eggs - from our Manheim Yardbirds!

Our hens, roosters, ducks, & turkeys are free-range with a varied diet made up of commercial chicken-feed, fresh fruit & plants from our gardens, and insects and other invertebrates they forage for in the enclosure. When they are laying regularly they produce a lot of eggs, allowing us to offer cartons of eggs for purchase.

Buy Honey - from our bees!

Manheim Gardens supports a number of thriving colonies of honey bees. You may notice their brightly colored hives (bee boxes) throughout the gardens, with the majority being in the food forest.

Honey bees you encounter in the gardens are focused on foraging and generally not interested in the humans wandering through. To keep you and the bees safe, we ask that you remain calm and do not disturb the bees or their hives. We typically harvest honey in the fall and there are oportunities to watch the harvest and perhaps even be involved when the bee experts are around.
