Gardening at our Church

This Saturday marks the beginning of the Martin Luther Church Public Garden gardening season. We would welcome anyone who is interested to join us this Saturday (May 19) at 10 am for a morning of garden work in our property’s green space.

The first session will be one of assessment, clean-up and planning for the season. Bring garden gloves (we will have a few extra) a sun hat, and your favorite brown beverage, along with anything else you might think would be useful.

We have fun, chat a bit, and care for God’s creation, and you are welcome to join us!

Please contact Marianne Thornton at if you have any questions.

More information about the gardening project can be found here.
