COVID-19 Quarantine News

Dear gardeners,

We hope this email finds all of you healthy and not too bored.

Just a couple things….

The garden will be opening as soon as the ground is ready for tilling. We will need to practice social distancing while doing our gardening.

The meeting on April 18 for the garden start up has been cancelled. We will work on an alternative to an in person meeting, possibly a social media event. We will send out more information on this as soon as something is in place. Do let us know if you have any questions or ideas for the garden and/or the gardeners as we are getting ready for a socially distant gardening season. 

Let us know that you received this email by responding with your plot number from last year.

    I am interested in apply for a garden spot for the 2020 season. Will you be offering spots for this year (it looks like all of this info is for the 2019 season)? Thank you so much for offering this service to the community!

    Yes, we will be offering garden plots after the COVID-19 quarantine is lifted. We will update the website at that time. If you have any questions or want to get on the list, please email our church office at Thank you.
