The Giving Garden of Carrollton has donated over 2,000 pounds of fresh organic produce to Christian Community Action and the Aldersgate UMC in 2015.
We welcome you to come join in our efforts. Now interviewing applicants interested in adopting a plot for 2016. The yearly fee is $40 for a bed measuring 4′ x 20′.
Let your friends and neighbors know that plots are available for rent.
Today was Food Share for senior citizens in the community delivered by volunteers of Aldersgate United Methodist Church. Thanks to Cindy Baxley for taking our 21 lb. harvest up to the church for distribution. We had a Hebron High School senior assisting in the garden and with Food Share this morning and he was a tremendous help. We also had a neighbor volunteer. Linda had been a recipient of some of our free mulch and felt she wanted to give back so she joined us in pulling Bermuda grass. She is in the orange shirt and floppy straw hat.
There were so many people working to clean up the garden common areas pulling Bermuda grass and weeds. It was hot but the efforts of so many were SIZZLING as tasks got done. Thanks to all who help to keep our beautiful garden in good shape!
We had about 27 people gather inside at the church for great food and wonderful fellowship in spite of the storms! Carolyn’s blackberry cobbler was a great hit and there were some dishes made from fresh ingredients from the garden such as salad and green beans! If you missed this one be sure and make the next one.
The sun is actually popping out a little so those tomatoes may start ripening after all. If you haven’t checked out the berry beds be sure and take a look. They are gorgeous.
Hope to see you soon at the garden and maybe you it won’t be in an ark!
Thanks to T.C. and Carolyn Rice for our wonderful berry patch that is bountiful with blooms! We should get a good yield when they are ready to harvest soon. The garden is looking beautiful and we are getting some very beneficial rains. We will have an all gardener work day on Saturday, April 25th so we look forward to seeing everyone out in the garden that day.
