|What’s Growing in the Food for the Journey Community Garden!|
With the garden planted, it’s time to start thinking about volunteering again! For the time being, we need volunteers to weed and water the garden. As time goes on, we will need people to harvest, to drive food to distribution points and to help hand it out! You can click the link below to sign up, or talk to Lori Petersen!
Food for the Journey is branching out!!! We are excited to announce that there are 2 new gardens being planted this year. One is at the Dickson Hollow Presbyterian senior living home in Menomonee Falls. The residents there will tend this garden as their way of continuing to be active and reaching out to their community. The second is at North Shore Presbyterian Church of Shorewood. There will be a dedication service this Sunday, June 12 at noon. Come join Pastor Nikki (DPC), Pastor Matt Lee(Kettle Moraine United Presbyterian Church) and Pastor Nicole Melara (interim pastor, North Shore Presbyterian Church) in dedicating the garden! Pastor Nicole has has sent the following invitation:
