the project

This project was born by a desire give people the opportunity to meet people that they normally would not have met while doing something that they love.  We will be cultivating relationships while growing produce.  The church really hopes that the relationships that are formed are transformative to making our community a much more happier and peaceful place.  We can't truly understand someone unless we get to know them. In a world that seems like we are more concerned about building up barriers and dividing people or putting people in categories, we truly believe that we need to build more bridges of communication and understanding among people of different backgrounds and traditions. 

This year we will have 25 boxes and plan to grow the garden each year by adding more. 


the steps

We have already started recieving applications for people to be a part of this project.  We will have a planting party where people can meet and start to get to know each other.  We will try to involve the community with classes even if they are not growing anything in our garden.  Members from the church will be here to help and meet the community members and try to support them in their work.

why we're doing it

We are doing this because we feel it is up to the church to build community and promote love among all people. We want to help provide ways for people to meet someone new and ways for people to build more lasting relationships.  Our hope is that these relationships will lead to a better understanding among neighbors and will help build a community filled with more love than hate.  We want for people to get outside and interact with their neighbors and we feel that the church plays an important role.
