HERITAGE COMMUNITY GARDEN
Contact Wally Grant, firstname.lastname@example.org for information about available plots and the growing season for our Community Garden.
Here is a short message from congregation member Susan Siefert on her first experience with the community garden:
I reserved a plot in our church garden during the winter of 2020 at Heritage United Methodist Church to have a summer activity with my grandchildren. Little did I know Covid would change our world in many ways! The garden turned out to be a place of respite and time of prayerful thoughts for me due to various worries created by Covid. It was also a nice reward for my grandsons to go water and ultimately pick from the garden after completing their on line school work.
In addition to being an unexpected positive for our family, we were also able to visit with new acquaintances at the garden and share our goods of flowers, lettuce, tomatoes and zucchini with others. I took fun surprises of flowers and food to two close friends of my mother in law, Velma, during this time. Velma had also been a member of Heritage United Methodist Church. Zinnias went to my neighbor as she prepared to have dinner guests. Who would have thought as my grandsons and I planted seeds, the little flowers would spread smiles to others. I had so many zinnias, I told the other gardeners to help themselves.
I renewed my garden plot for next spring and summer as it was a blessing to our family.
