St. John's Grow-to-Give Garden – Volunteers are Needed!Workdays are every Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. and the second Saturday of every month at 10:00 a.m. These days 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 even offer community service credits). See more info below and contact Jesse Lebus or Seamus Mitchell if you're interested in getting involved.
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 workdays
- help distribute food on Tuesday nights
- donate some resources to the growing initiative
- donate supplies to help grow the garden
