St. Mark's and St. John's operates seven E.D.E.N. (Every Day Eating Naturally) gardens in the Beechwood neighborhood. They serve as a hub for healthy, affordable food in the neighborhood, as well as educational spaces for children and youth to learn about nutrition and diet, garden maintenance, business management, and leadership skills. SMSJ also runs Kids' Club camps during school holidays, a year-round high school equivalency tutoring center, and a weekly Food Shelf, alongside regular Episcopal church services.
