ARCC Community Garden

Garden“Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.” (Genesis 1:29-30)

God was (and continues to be) the Original and Ultimate Gardner.  So we as a church established the Ken Braze Community Garden to remind us of our “roots” as well as a means to meet practical needs in our community.

There are three parts to the Community Garden, each with its own particular focus or mission:

1. Over 30 public plots of various sizes and shapes are available.  Each community gardener pays a annual plot rental fee to cover the use of water.   A plot map is available in the church office.  A gardener agreement form must be signed and payment received annually.

2. Feed the Hungry plot in which food is given to Loaves and Fishes, Carmichael Food Closet, and to Congregation and Community members in need.  Volunteers till, plant, weed, water and harvest under the direction of Ken Brizzi.

3. Wonderland School Garden and Learning Center (also known as Veggie Trails) is a children’s garden which provides hands on skills of tending a garden.
