Garden Coordinators

The community garden is in it’s 10th summer and is a vital mix of people from all over our surrounding community. We host church members, Kenyan church members, Immigrant gardeners, and young and old people. Some of us are church members but many of us are not. The community garden has volunteer opportunities that are PERFECT FOR YOU! Share your talent and “grow new talents”!
