The vegetable garden was started four years ago with the mission of building stronger communities, promoting volunteerism and growing healthy food for their local community.
Audrey Yates is coordinator of The Garden Party garden hosted by Redeemer Lutheran Church. The group of volunteer gardeners continue to donate the vegetables and herbs from the garden, to local charities.
They grow organic vegetables in the two garden plots that are located at the back of the church. They have many types of leafy greens, and different squash and tomatoes to mention a few. They also grow organic herbs like rosemary and mint in the new container gardens that they have created for this season.
