This ministry serves the parish and extended community by growing fresh vegetables and fruits annually for distribution to 'feed the hungry' within our community (on Sundays) and within local food banks and soup kitchens. We plant and maintain a growing orchard and Christmas tree farm. We also plant/maintain a perennial flower garden that is used to produce flowers for the church.
Even during the pandemic the garden grew in 2020.
No experience required. Open to all families who wish to help us follow Christ's directive of love through our actions (which in this case is gardening). We have fun working together as families and individuals throughout the growing season and focus on growing in Christ's love. Besides gardening, we also host dinners and classes (bee keeping, salsa canning, pruning, etc). We love seeing new families and accept the complexities of life's time commitments. Therefore our activities span throughout the week.
