Grace Garden and Farm - Grace Lutheran Church Community Garden Initiative was started in 2012 after a conversation I had with the pastor of the church. I asked why the church had so much under utilized property that sat idly while the community it serves is in need of fresh ad healthy produce. In that moment, the project came to life, and within two months after our first conversation, Reverend Kyle, myself, and a small cadre of community leaders broke ground on the garden. It still stands as a vibrant and serene green space in the community that yields food year round for the community. I appreciate that it functions on the merit system, only asking that commmunity members harvest mindfully
