How Does Our Garden Grow?

by Al Johnson, Co-chair, Earth and Climate Ministry

Allie’s Garden has been fully planted, thanks in part to help from our Children’s Faith Engagement participants. Our crops of carrots, sweet potatoes and butternut squash are off to a good start. Volunteers to water the garden are lined up for the entire summer when needed. We are hoping to improve on compromised 2022 harvests caused by the hot dry weather. All crops will be harvested in the fall and likely distributed to the Trenton Soup Kitchen, Rolling Harvest (which distributes to food banks and other programs in the area) and HomeFront. Donation destinations will depend on the size of the harvests and needs of these organizations.
