Churches around the country are offering their open spaces for shared use; directly and through cooperatives.
We are expanding our Children’s Garden this year to include participants from our neighborhood and neighborhood schools!
“By allotting land for a community garden, a church is saying, we care about the community, the planet and providing a source for personal enrichment on a spiritual, physical and emotional level.” ~Amy Lee
This connection with the surrounding communities binds a church and village with a simple use—to use the earth for the greater good of all who share it. N.C.o.M.’s hope is that by providing this opportunity for school children to plant a seedling and watch it grow, it will help them:
- Have a respect and love for nature,
- Create real knowledge of how food grows,
- Develop an understanding of a power greater than themselves &
- Share a place to connect with others in our community space!
See our progress!
