I just did a newspaper article about a local Mennonite Church Community Garden. As you can see from the photo, these people take gardening seriously. The garden coordinator told me this used to just be a big patch of grass south of the church, until 2013. That’s when one of the Sunday School classes decided to make the land a lot more productive. They sub-divided it into 16 rather large plots, added a good deal of compost to the soil, and have turned it all into a rather thriving thing. Mennonites believe we are to be good stewards of God’s creation. And what’s more, they believe they are to help those less fortunate. So, a lot of this produce every season finds its way to several local food banks and soup kitchens.
