Community Gardens

 

 

Community Garden (#1) is located in the corner lot - 19th and Liberty Streets - adjacent to the church parking lot.  The garden provides fresh vegetables for our food pantry as well as anyone in the neighborhood who wants to stop by and help themselves to the fresh veggies provided daily.  Veggies are placed in the special wooden display cart which was made especially for our garden by church member Bernie Poole.


The garden started out as a vision in 2012 to use some vacant land that used to be the site of our apartment building for a positive purpose for the community. Over the last few years it has been amazing to see how God is working through the hands of his children to cultivate the land into a sustainable garden. On any given day during the summer you can see a wide variety of people come and be blessed by the opportunity to reap the harvest that God has blessed us with through the garden. 

 

In spring, 2014, the Community Garden effort expanded to include a new site on Rt. 68 North, just north of the city.  This garden spot (CG#2) is planted with veggies that are not  as labor-intensive as those in the church-side garden.  Potatoes, corn, beans are a part of the planting at this site and are made available with all of the other veggies from the original site adjacent to the church.

 

If you have a green thumb or just want to donate time to help in the garden we are always looking for helpers. We also can always uses tools, plants and financial assistance to support this program as well.
