Southern Maryland Sierra Club and the Rotary Club of Lexington Park are proud to announce a partnership to help address issues of food insecurity in St. Mary’s County.

Since 2020, the Southern Maryland Sierra Club has been working with local houses of worship and non-profits around the region to build vegetable gardens to provide fresh, nutritious produce to those in need. Efforts have led to the construction of twenty-eight vegetable garden beds in Calvert and Charles Counties that provide hundreds of pounds of fresh food per season to those in need.
