St. Luke's Teaching Garden had a booth at EVA's 1st Annual Back to School Block Party on August 25th! We taught over 60 youngsters how to transplant a flower into a pot and they got to take it home while their adult person was happy to take home free seed packets! Our face painting was also a big hit, Lydia mastered the art with Minions and garden flowers! Folks were invited to join us for service on Sundays and to be our guest at the potluck the next day! Working for the Lord – always time well spent!
Our first Seed – Sort & Save event was a success! We learned how and when to harvest seeds and how to clean and save them. Everybody got to take some home too! The next Seed – Sort & Save will be on Monday, July 30th from 6-7pm, join us!
Where does our produce go? Currently to The Children's Clinic, volunteers, Little Sunshine House preschool, and YOU! Keep your eye out after Sunday service because you never know if there will be a table with fresh vegetables for the taking!
HELP! The garden soil is in need of amendment! We started with some very poor soil and it takes time to get it “just right.” Your donation will help us buy the quality OMRI certified soil amendment we need! Please send a check to the church with ‘Teaching Garden’ in memo line.
Crop Swap 90813 is every 3rd Monday from 6-7pm. Join us on August 20th!
May your roots grow deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love!
Peace to you!
