The Church Alliance protects the benefits of faith leaders. Faith leaders, and local churches, movements or organizations, pay it forward and give back within their community.

The Glencoe Community Garden is a sustainable, organic-practicing, food producing mini-farm and compost collaborative, established in 2012 by Am Shalom as a service and educational project.

Built and cared for by volunteers, the Garden’s mission is altruistic, educational, and exploratory. Each season, approximately 3,000 pounds of fresh food is harvested and donated to local social service organizations that share the dream of food security for all and the mindfulness for our environment.

With the Garden’s community composting initiative and use of drip irrigation, solar power and rain collection, the 5,000 sq. ft. area is zero waste to landfill.
