Helping Our Community
The Bob and Muriel Williams NAM Community Garden, founded in 1990, provides fresh, organically-grown produce for the Joan Watford Nutrition Center (a choice food pantry) at Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM).
In 2022, the garden produced 1,087.5 pounds of fresh vegetables and fruit for clients at NAM.
The NAM Garden is also a neighborhood garden for Spring and the surrounding community. Through membership and association with Houston’s Urban Harvest, the NAM Garden reaches community members and schools wishing to learn sustainable, environmentally friendly growing methods for implementation in home and school gardens. Individuals and groups are welcome to visit for instruction and hands-on experience.
The NAM Garden usually has volunteers each morning Monday-Saturday. If you want to volunteer, you can contact Mary Davis at 832-372-2200 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure someone will be there to show you around.
Other volunteer opportunities include: transporting produce to the NAM Joan Watford food pantry, special projects (such as the fall leaf harvest), making signs, and serving on Plymouth’s NAM Garden sub-team to help plan and set projects and goals.
