Our community garden serves as a opportunity for church members and community members alike to learn about gardening and enjoying life in the garden! The garden consists of 26 raised beds, including one demonstration bed, one for the Boys & Girls Club, and one herb bed for all to use. Produce from the demo bed is used at Community Dinners throughout the summer.
Gardeners consist of about 1/3 Grace UMC church members, 1/3 students in our ESL classes and their families, and 1/3 community members. Most of our gardeners are new to the garden – and many are even new to the country! Garden volunteers are available every Tuesday morning to offer help, but gardeners are welcome to visit their plots any time and encouraged to bring their children to enjoy the space as well.
Cost for a bed is $20 for the entire growing season, which covers the cost of seeds and water.
