What is a community garden?

The American Community Gardening Association defines a community garden broadly. A community garden can be urban, suburban, or rural. It can grow flowers, vegetables—or community. It can be one community plot or many individual plots. It can be located at a school, hospital, church or in a neighborhood.

Another way of thinking about community gardens are as “community-managed open spaces.” These differ from a park or public space where some other entity ultimately decides the purpose of the site and maintains it. Community gardens are where the residents of a community are empowered to design, build, and maintain spaces in the community.

Does this sound like something you would be interested in. If so, the Community Garden Team is holding a planning meeting for our upcoming 2023 Community Garden. All interested parties please plan on attending this meeting December 11th at 8:45 am in Young Hall.

Contact Mark Groh or Rod Margherio for more information on this project.

Ask, Thank, Tell by Charles R. Lane

Discover what Sharing Generously means:

  • Understanding that all we have and possess is from and because of God and, like our generous God we as faithful followers of God must also be generous with what we have and who we are.
  • Sharing opens our doors to community and fellowship.
  • Realizing that Resurrection is the focal point of our faith community and as such needs members support to maintain and enhance our community and our outreach.
