This will be a great activity for all of our friends and family to come out and get their hands dirty, learn about plants and complete a great weekend of the All Parish Conference!

On Saturday May 22, you can come back to the garden to attend our First Garden Class!!
Beginning at 10:00am, members of the Missions and Environmental Stewardship Committees will be on site to educate all participants on:

Plants vs. Weeds How to know what's what!

Welcome to the Outreach Community Garden of Emmanuel!!

The members of Emmanuel are so excited about our newest endeavor! For the past 30 years, Emmanuel's Food Center has helped to feed over 60 families a month through staples and other non-perishable items. Now our Missions and Environmental Stewardship Committees have teamed up to create The Outreach Community Garden of Emmanuel (OCGE) which will provide fresh produce to patrons of Emmanuel's Food Center to supplement and enrich the diet of our neighbors.

This community effort will reach to our eldest and youngest participants to make sure everyone of our neighbors can receive the proper nutrition our bodies need!

With many Thanks to Kuhn Construction and Webster-Rock Hill Ministries for what we were able to create today:

Three new raised vegetable beds that will hold a bounty of food!
Please look for our smiling faces and bookmark this page as we sign up more parishioners to help out with the OCGE!
