First Presbyterian Church will be a part of the Community Garden that is being created on the corner of 14th and I Street (south of New Sagaya City Market). This is a community garden that is being organized through Anchor Gardens and since our church is so close it is a perfect match for us to get involved. The food we grow will be given to the Food Bank for distribution.
All are invited to a work party (children, youth, adults) this Wednesday, May 20 from 6-8 pm. We will be working to help complete the lasagna beds for the garden spaces so we can begin planting next week. One of the Anchor Gardens leaders will mentor us as we work together.
Wear gloves and a mask (we will be social distancing)
Bring your own water
Bring your own tools: wheel barrow, shovels, rakes
Supplies needed: cardboard, leaves, kitchen scraps-not dairy or meat,coffee grounds- call your coffee shop and ask them to save them for you, straw, aged manure, spent malt grains (can get free from breweries)
If you cannot help with the build possibly you can bring supplies. You can drop them off anytime at the Community Garden site. Just pull up and you will find the bin or area for your donations.
