Caring for Creation continues to GROW!
The vision for 2010 is the Montview Food Initiative Project (Food for Friends). We are planting the idea of community organic vegetable gardens and sharing the harvest with local food banks. The Youth and Children’s Ministries are plotting to seed and weed a garden space at Park Hill Elementary School, and you are welcome to join that ground crew OR to donate part of the largesse from your own personal garden this summer. Contact Diane Grove with questions and for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-388-7808.
Montview’s Community Garden Plots
Montview has secured not one, but three community garden plots at the Park Hill Elementary Community Garden sponsored by Denver Urban Gardens (DUG)! The garden is located on the SW corner of the Park Hill Elementary School campus at the corner of 17th Ave and Elm St. It is located right next to the playground, and the gate is always open to the public. Please feel free to wander over and check it out. The three Montview plots are each marked with a GROW sign. Kids are definitely welcome, but dogs will need to be tied up outside the gate.
Donate your extra produce
Got zillions of zucchini, gobs of green beans, tons of tomatoes? Sunday, July 18, August 21, and September 19 have been designated “Produce Drop-off Days”. We will be harvesting veggies from the community garden, and welcome gifts from your own bountiful gardens to add to our donations to area food banks, homeless shelters and refugee centers. Bring your produce to church and drop it off at a gathering spot in the Commons. We will make sure that it gets into the right hands.
