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.
SATURDAY APRIL 17 UPDATE:
GARDEN SCHEDULE THIS WEEK:
Monday, April 19, 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Tuesday, April 20 from 9:00 am -11:00 am.
GARDEN WORKDAY Saturday, April 24, from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. We will be installing soaker hoses and planting tomatoe and pepper seedlings hearty enough and working on making the arbor between beds 7 & 8 for climbing plants.
All beds have been turned/raked and are ready to grow. We added to the herb garden and planted hollyhocks in the rear berm and a rose bush and a lilac bush in the side berm. A big challenge remains to be weeding in the mulch walkways and berms.
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. Last year we completed our 2nd 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 food distribution in Ferguson.
