Why Community Gardening?
"The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it."
"[A] Christian agriculture is formed upon the understanding that it is sinful for people to misuse or destroy what they did not make. The Creation is a unique, irreplaceable gift, therefore to be used with humility, respect, and skill."
--Wendell Berry, The Unsettling of America
Being close to the earth is our communal spiritual practice of love and justice. Using sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices not only preserves the earth, but it also contributes positively to the cycle of life and helps reverse climate change. Local food makes our community strong. We envision justice in our community when healthy, toxin-free food is available for all.
What to Expect at Community Gardening
With the guidance of our farm manager, we grow seasonal vegetables and fruits throughout the year. At Community Gardening, you may be invited to weed beds, harvest produce, plant seeds, or sling compost. Please wear closed-toed shoes and bring work gloves.
At the end of our time in the garden, we reflect on our experience and share what we learned from the earth today.
All ages are welcome. Children under 12 must be supervised by a parent or caregiver.

We hope to see you there!
Community Gardening happens on first and third Sundays at 10:00-11:00am at Sprout Farm.
Please bring your own work gloves and wear closed-toed shoes.
