This garden provides an opportunity to improve access to nutritious fresh produce in our community! This happens in several ways:

  • Learn how to garden.
  • Tend a garden plot at the church.
  • Grow a garden at home.
  • Water the church gardens.
  • Harvest produce for the food pantry. **We need lots of help with this!**

How does our Garden Work?

  • Register for a garden plot to grow your own fresh produce at the church (free).
  • Harvest extra produce for the food pantry in your church garden plot on Tuesdays and Fridays. You can take home your harvest any time.
  • Volunteer to help on planting day and other service days in the church garden.
  • Donate fresh produce from your home garden for the Maple Morgan Park Food Pantry. Bring produce on Tuesdays or Fridays.

**If you are interested in getting involved with us in any way this season, you can fill out the participant form below.**

Our church garden is a partner of Grace Seeds Ministry in Chicago.

Gardener's Exchange Extravaganza!

Our 2022 event was a great success!  Thanks to the hundreds of neighbors who participated, shared seeds, shared plants, shared tools, and shared hope!  This event is for kids and adults, beginners and master gardeners alike! Growing your own food can nourish spirits, minds and bodies. We can garden to make nutritious food affordable and to connect with the earth. Our goal is growing resilience.
