Garden of Hope

Thanks go to Elissa for watering the garden on Tuesday last week.  Thanks to Shelley, Susan,  Anne, Ted, Doris and Dave for helping on Saturday, picking 109.1 pounds of tomatoes, squash, and peppers.  Doris and Dave delivered this week’s produce to Rock Spring Congregational Church for further distribution to Arlington Food pantries.  Our total for the year now stands at 2,341.3 pounds!

Please sign up to water the garden (if it does not rain) on Tuesday and Thursday.  You do not need to stay in the garden while watering.  Just turn the water “on” at the hose bibs (standpipes), leave, and return after about 2 hours to turn the water off.  Please sign up at the link below!

This is our “picking season” and if you can, please volunteer to help.  Our next work day is Saturday, September 23rd starting at 9:00am (Sunday, if Saturday is too wet)

If you are interested in volunteering in the St. Andrew’s Garden for Hope, click the link below.  If you have questions concerning the sign-up, please contact our Parish Administrator.
