The church buildings are surrounded by sweeping lawn areas and many small gardens, each with its own personality. The lawns are mowed by a professional landscaping company. The gardens are a labor of volunteer love.
The gardeners are building native plant communities in order to provide habitat for insects and birds as well as beautiful surroundings for the church. Anyone who is interested in joining in is welcome. It is a great opportunity to meet people, learn more about ecological gardening and give back to the church.
As ecological gardeners we learn together about native plants and use them in our landscape, incorporate layers of plants that grow well together, select plants to attract birds and insects, include plants that will provide interest throughout the year. There is no fixed schedule as gardening is weather dependent. Time to work together can be arranged. Volunteers can also work with the gardeners to carry out tasks at their own convenience.
No tools? No problem! The church has a supply of basic tools. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Carolyn Koch.
