2016 Planting Day and Plant Sale
May 15, 2016

Community Garden8

Ministry Overview

The garden is located around the Shrine of Mary on church grounds. Volunteers of all ages and gardening knowledge are needed during the growing season to plant and tend the garden.  The garden grows tomatoes and peppers and are donated to Anna’s House.

 

 

 

 

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are organized into teams.  Each team meets approximately once a month on Saturday mornings to weed, water and harvest the garden.

As a volunteer here are some things you can participate in:

  • Gardening/weeding/harvesting with your team from May to October
  • Helping with our big work days at the beginning and end of the growing season (Planting Day in May/June, and End-Of-Season Cleanup Day in October)
  • Grow produce at your home and donate the harvest to the ministry to be shared with families in need
