Grow a Garden and Feed the Hungry
Our marching orders are clear, “Feed the Hungry.” A growing number of congregations in our community have found vegetable gardens to be an effective part of answering that call. These gardens have enabled the refugee community, helped troubled youth, and created an opportunity for parishioners to provide the hungry with nutritious food.
Join Certified Crop Advisory Geoffrey Martin from the San Antonio Food Bank for a workshop exploring the practicalities of starting a church garden. Examples of successful church gardens in and around San Antonio will be highlighted. Experts from the Refugee Resettlement Program, the Green Space Alliance and other organizations will be on hand with helpful hints on making your garden as far-reaching, productive and cost-effective as possible. Details on a 10,000 plant give-away to make your start-up easier will be provided.
Join us on
Saturday, January 19
9 a.m. – Noon
