What is a community garden? It is a unique space where neighbors and residents can come together to build community and grow food.
The produce in the Community Gardens of Hope Hill is grown by individual community gardeners for themselves, their families and for donation to local food pantries. If you would like to work in the garden and share in the harvest, you are encouraged to sign up and join us. For a $10.00 annual membership and a commitment to work at least four hours a month you are entitled to your share of the harvest.
GARDEN SCHEDULE THIS WEEK:
Tuesday, October 19, 5:30 pm – dusk
Ken is out of town this week and Erica is not all back in the swing of things after her wonderful vacation so the only time scheduled in the garden so far this week is Tuesday. We will try to update this post if other times become available. In the meantime, the tomatoes are still blooming and besides the tomatoes there is okra, mini-cucumbers, banana peppers and string beans aplenty.
Raspberries, okra, and somewhere under all those vines…sweet potatoes!
HERE WE GROW!
The Community Gardens of Hope Hill are designed to be a community space with picnic tables, a shaded bench, and a labyrinth for quiet time, prayer or meditation. We are well into our 3rd full growing season and God’s bountiful harvest has enriched the lives of our garden members, members of several local church congregations, and recipients of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta’s and St. Stephen’s Episcopal free food distribution in Ferguson.
