The Growing Project at The Wittel Farm

The Growing Project - PlantingLCC, in partnership with Hunger-Free Lancaster County (, is undertaking an ambitious new ministry initiative at The Wittel Farm. The Growing Project is dedicated to growing fresh vegetables to help feed hungry people in Lancaster County.

The Wittel Farm Growing Project is growing from two to five acres in 2017, with plans to raise sweet corn, peppers, tomatoes, various greens, sugar snap peas and beans. Groups are invited to help assist by serving at the "farm" starting with Planting Day on May 20th, at 8:30 AM. Volunteers will be needed throughout the planting, growing, and harvest process to make this venture successful so there will be abundant opportunity for individuals, church groups, businesses, schools, and others to get involved. To get involved and for more information contact Mike Youse at the camping office at 717-677-8211.
