St. John’s Grow-to-Give Garden is on the cusp of a new year and volunteers are needed!
April 8th, at 10:00 a.m., marks the first of our second Saturday work days. These days will feature standard gardening
opportunities as well as more substantial construction projects like raised bed building and shed renovation.
Friends and family of ALL AGES are welcome to participate (we can even offer community service credits). Contact Seamus Mitchell for more information.
Grow to Give Garden
St. John’s Church service garden is a smashing success bringing together over 80 different volunteers to grow over 500 lbs. of produce for hungry families in Huntington Station and distributing this through the Food Not Bombs Food Share on Tuesday nights in Huntington Station. The goal of St. John’s Grow to Give Garden is to bring young and old together in service of others. Come be part of this exciting venture and in the words of a Newsday article feature this initiative, “to let generosity grow.”
The garden will continue to grow this year and in years to come, and we need you to be part of this initiative and to care for those in need as we all grow in grace. There are many ways to participate:
- join us for the garden workday
- sign up for a week of tending the garden
- help distribute food on Tuesday nights
- donate some resources to the growing initiative
- donate supplies to help grow the garden
The Gardening Schedule which includes notice of work days and the individuals/families who are signed up to tend the garden for a week’s work of light gardening (2-4 hrs/week) and food distribution will be updated in the spring. If you would like to sign up for a week, please contact Seamus Mitchell.
