Starting a new crop in 2014

Finding peace and fun in gardening? Perfect, join us!

We have started planting seeds indoors for our new crop this year.

Also new this year is that the Lab school has asked to 'adopt' the first raised bed, close to their playground. This will be a fantastic opportunity for sowing the seeds of love with the children. We are all very excited!

If you feel you would like to be a part of this ministry, please contact us anytime.

Thankful for abundance

The gardens had ample tomatoes to give to the Circle of Concern Food Pantry. We are very thankful to all who helped grow, harvest and distribute our harvest to the needy and hungry.
After gathering 16 square feet of basil, it was a Pesto making day to remember!
We produced 80 jars of delicious pesto, which you can obtain for only $5. All proceeds to to our Creation Care Ministry, helping the hungry and this year also, the energy poor. We elected to donate funds to to help with energy related services for the underprivileged, elderly and disabled members of the St. Louis community.

Saturday - December 14: from 10-11 am we will clean up the garden beds and invite YOU to come and help us out.
Bring family/friends and a rake to join in the fun!

Hannah and James picking veggies
Our Gardens of Grace are very fruitful this year. After an early scare of tomato rotting, Sue Nixon quickly amended the soil with limestone and we are happy to report that it worked! Our very first tomato crop is being delivered almost weekly now to 'Circle of Concern' Food Pantry in Valley Park.  In addition to tomatoes we have peppers, green beans, cucumbers, lettuce, zucchini, and yellow squash. Thank you Alice, Sue, Jim and Barb for all your help, picking, watering and delivering. We would love to have more gardening angels. Are you available and interested in investing an hour a week to help feed the hungry?
Send us an email HERE and we will put you right to work. Blessings to all the angels out there, making this wonderful ministry possible. Especially to our plant takers, whose donations work right back into the gardens.
