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:
Monday, July 19, 9:00 – 11:00 am

Come and get ’em! There should be lots of cucumbers and green beans and a good number of tomatoes and zucchini ready to harvest. All of the various greens are ready to harvest again along with beets and carrots.
Work to do: As always, hand weeding the beds and weed spraying the walkways and watering, depending on the weather. The cherry tomatoes are getting a little rambunctious and need to be shored up with twine, but we are running low on twine.
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.
