Whether in Genesis, Jeremiah, or the Gospels, gardens play a prominent role in God’s plans. It even starts in one. A garden is a wondrous place where we can “meet” with the Lord and marvel at His miracles. It’s a place to love your neighbor, care for creation, and grow veggies. No wonder churches everywhere are interested in them. They see them as a way to meet local needs. Some have planted food-pantry gardens, giving produce to food banks. Others rent plots on church grounds as a way to use the land productively and respond to a tight economy. Still others have reclaimed derelict inner city properties, transforming vacant lots. In the process, gardeners from these projects have enjoyed a greater sense of community, a joy in connecting with the natural world and a healthier diet. All of which is good. But church gardens can be much more. They can meet needs and at the same time celebrate the bounty of God’s good earth. It’s a way to grow both food and community, a way to honor and care for people and for the planet. This easy-to-read manual is for churches, schools, and groups interested in growing gardens and blessings for their communities.
