This is the day that the foundation of the Garden will be put in place as we turn this empty lot into a place that is ready to plant and grow in all kinds of ways. Our collaborators from Green Girl Farms will be leading us in this exciting work. We’re calling for strong hands and bodies to come and work together to raise this garden!
Work: Noon-4:00 pm
Here are the tasks we would like to achieve:
– Stuff burlap tubes for raised beds
– Lay out beds
– Fill beds with soil
We recommend long-sleeve shirts & bandanas for covering nose and mouth for stuffing burlap tubes. Straw can be scratchy, and has lots of debris that can make you sneeze. Appropriate clothes & sunscreen for sunny weather are recommended. Bring work or garden gloves if you have them. Also, closed-toe shoes are required.
Thank you for joining us for this critical part of the garden raising!
Worship: 4:00 pm
After we have worked hard, we’ll settle into our chairs and blankets for our very first worship service in our new space, and explore what the words “I am the vine, you are the branches” might mean for us as the Garden Church, raise our voices in prayer and song and share together in the Sacred Meal.
Bring your camping chair or blanket.
Eat: 5:00 pm
Worship will lead into our community meal, where we will enjoy hearty food and good company together after our day of work. You’re welcome to bring a side dish or drink to share.
Come for a part or the whole time, your presence is welcome wherever you’re drawn.
