The First Fruits Initiative* is Crown Point’s outreach to the community.CROWN Raster Small

The following are some of the good works Crown Point does through its First Fruits Initiative:

  • Donate fresh, organic produce to the Akron-Canton Regional FoodBank each year.  To date, this program has donated more than 15,000 lbs of produce to the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank.
  • Donate plants from our annual Organic Plant sale to community and school gardens.
  • Offer scholarships to children in need each summer to attend Crown Point’s Summer Farm and Science Camp.
  • Provide educational outreach to schools about a variety of topics from sustainability to recycling to organic farming.

 

Donate to Crown Point’s First Fruits Initiative today.

Please add in the comments section that your donation is specifically for the First Fruits Initiative.

*Crown Point derives the name First Fruits from the Bible, where the term is used in many passages.  Perhaps the one that shares our view the best comes from Proverbs 3:9-10.

Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.
