Praise Harvest Tour Spring 2020

Peter Putzier (Evansville) gives a tour of  Praise Harvest, a community garden maintained by the People of Praise in Evansville. They are continuing to turn vacant city lots--and their own backyards--into gardens to grow produce for their neighbors. This year, Praise Harvest aims to grow over 4,000 pounds of greens alone, as well as much more.


  1. Tom Loughran says:

    This is inspiring work! Thanks for the tour.

  2. Bill Crimmins says:

    Great work folks, both gardeners and documentarians. Thanks!

  3. Carolin Faytle says:

    Very impressive! You have done a lot of hard work. Will pray for a good growing season.

  4. Ted L Vernon says:

    Great work, everyone!

    Glad to hear you're growing okra. I've lived all my life in northeastern Indiana and Minnesota, and I LOVE okra (and shrimp and grits, and biscuits and gravy)! ?

  5. Miriam Pena says:

    This is very impressive. Will be praying for a good harvest and great weather.

  6. Joel Kibler says:

    Wow! I loved the tour. Made me want to go make a salad for lunch. Peter Putzier, you are a great tour leader--joyful, enthusiastic, informative, and kind of funny. Thanks for your labor of love. What a good, good, good, good, work.

  7. Jill Boughton says:

    Great tour, but those are NOT carrot plants!
    Since greens are so light-weight, last year's harvest and your projections for this year are amazing! Great example of listening to what neighbors love!

  8. Margaret Sak says:

    What a wonderful work and fun tour! Thank you, Peter, and all my brothers and sisters working on the farm. You inspire me. May God bless this year's harvest and all of you.

  9. Linda Simpkins says:

    So great to get a look at what y'all are up to in Evansville. In addition to yielding a great harvest of greens, it looks like this project is going to keep you all busy and give you a chance to hang out together weeding and feeding all summer. Thank you for the opportunity to see the lay of the land/neighborhood, and how organized, hard working, connected to each other and to the surrounding community you are. Love those chickens!

  10. Lisa Krueger says:

    I'll say it again...inspiring! You all are the hands and feet of Jesus. Thank you for bringing Him to life there. Blessings on a fantastic growing season!

  11. Tom M Caneff says:

    Peter, LOVE IT. Nicely done!!

  12. Bob Badham says:

    There's a lot of joy that comes from nurturing the soil that nurtures our bodies!
    Thanks sharing the great harvest (to come).

  13. Barbara Bittner says:

    Very inspiring! I can't wait to see the harvest of both plants and people that will come.
