Have you visited the Giving Garden yet? Located on Madison Street, across from the
Preschool entrance, next to our garage, is our wonderful giving garden. On a beautiful Sunday
afternoon after worship 5 gardeners planted tomatoes, peppers, spinach, Swiss chard, green and
wax beans, Brussel sprouts, broccoli, lettuce and onions, gourds, and giant sun flowers.
This giving garden of Eden is fenced, protected by Paul and Silas our two owls, and our plants are growing like crazy!
Do you have a half hour or so? Come on over and weed, water and weed some more.
All of our produce will go to the People’s Resource Center for their food pantry.
