Giving Garden Update

“Plant seeds, Pull Weeds, Harvest Hope.” ~ Anonymous

Giving Garden planted in May

Three little square raised garden beds are accomplishing a lot for the ministry of Jesus this summer! Approximately 15 volunteers are covering twenty weeks of gardening responsibilities: daily watering, weeding and harvesting on Sundays. Volunteers report that they are taking over 8 one-gallon bags each week to Francis Basket, where neighbors in need are thankful for fresh produce. The core team of Gloria Dei members who are overseeing the ministry also revised the instructions to make it even easier for others to volunteer. Those instructions are now laminated by the garden.

Giving Garden in July

We are keeping a photo album of weekly growth, just for fun, on the church Flickr page. Click here to view: Thank you for your gifts of time and money to make this possible. And if your garden is producing in abundance, bring your extra veggies and herbs to to church and place in the red food bins to be donated to Francis Basket.
