St. Andrew’s 2021 Garden of Hope re-opened on March 13 with much enthusiasm. Multiple rows of cabbage, collards, kale, and cauliflower seedlings (raised from seeds by a St. Andrew’s parishioner), are now planted. In addition, volunteers planted rows of radish, spinach, and three pear trees in the apple orchard. A great start!
We begin work every Saturday at 9 a.m. If the weather is bad, we reschedule for the next day, Sunday, at 11:30 a.m.
If you have an interest in volunteering in the Garden of Hope, please sign-up through Sign Up Genius. Our guidelines to ensure volunteer safety:
- A maximum of 20 people may be in the garden at a time. To ensure that we are under that limit, volunteers must sign up in advance. Questions? Please email Emily Blecksmith, Parish Administrator.
- Volunteers must wear a face covering that covers the mouth and nose
- Volunteers must maintain six feet of distance from other volunteers while in the garden (exceptions made for volunteers from the same household)
- Volunteers must bring their own gardening gloves
- Other general materials volunteers should bring as needed: a water bottle, sunscreen, sun protection (e.g. hat, sunglasses, etc.)
We look forward to seeing you!
