Why A Church Garden???

Why have a church garden?

People need good nutritious food. People in poverty and the elderly need good nutrition the most, yet they are the most likely groups to not have frequent access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

We are commanded to love and care for our neighbors. What better way than with the gift of fresh food?

We are commanded to till and care for the Earth. God gave Adam a command that he should care for the garden. That command was never rescinded.

Working in the garden is fun. All age groups like to play in the dirt. The smell of freshly tilled soil is intoxicating! Proudly watching the progress of your plantings (and mourning the losses) gives you a wonderful, peaceful and complete feeling.
