Good News Garden!

The Good News Garden Project is really taking off throughout the Episcopal Church community. Last year we started a small community garden to supply the Franklin Food Pantry with some fresh veggies for our local neighbors.This year, we plan to move forward with a bigger and better Good News Garden and hope to involve the community!Here are the plans so far…

*Church school kids will plant some seeds and grow our seedlings

*In May, we will build 4-4’ x 12’ raised beds to the right of the current garden

*In late May we will plant the garden as we actively engage in the generosity of God’s abundance!

To make this a success, we need you!

While carefully following COVID guidelines, here’s how you and your family can help-

Sign up to:

-Construct a raised bed: materials will be supplied and on site

-Help haul garden soil to fill a bed

-Enclose raised beds with fencing, including in-bed plant supports

-Place lining on paths between beds

-Help plant seedlings!

-Water beds/weed gardens as needed during growing season

-Harvest and deliver fresh produce to Franklin Food Pantry early on Tuesdays and Friday mornings

What a great family and community opportunity!
