Community Garden

 Thank you so much for your interest in The Edgemont Bible Church Community Garden during our third year! We are excited to get started this Spring! The purpose of this garden is to build community, as well as encourage self-reliance, beautify the neighborhood, produce nutritious foods, reducing family food budgets, conserving resources, and create opportunity for recreation, exercise, and education.

   The garden is separated into 10 ft. x 10 ft. sections that can be rented at $30 per season. There is a separate herb garden and you are welcome to pick from.

   There are extra seeds and plants that are shared periodically that garden members receive information on as they become available.

   For the 2016 growing season, we’re looking for volunteers to care for parts of the garden, like the herb garden or maintaining the watering system. There are opportunities for administrative work, too. We would be happy to have you join us! If you are available to volunteer to help, please contact Jeff Pitts at 618-444-8799 or garden@EdgemontBibleChurch.org.

   Please read the Rules For Harmony carefully and turn in a Plot Reservation Form to the church office to have a plot assigned to you for the season.

   All are welcome! Anyone with great gardening secrets, or those who need some, can check the contact info sharing box on their application (garden use only, please).

Thank you for your interest in the Garden,
Jeff Pitts
