Church Opens Garden



By B. Cooper

Harvest season is here and it marks a time when people can enjoy the bountiful produce they planted earlier in the year. Some local youngsters at a church spent the morning picking vegetables so that the community can enjoy them. A group of children in the Sunday school class at Crossroads United Methodist Church spent their class outdoors Sunday morning.
The children picked vegetables and saw firsthand the result of hard work and dedication.
Brenda Bowman, a church member, "It was a pretty cool Sunday School idea to have them out here. Robyn and I were out here Friday and Cecil and picked a ton of green beans, tomatoes and squash and there is still a lot of work to do." Back in April volunteers spread manure in hopes of a beautiful garden that can provide produce for the church and anyone else in the community.
"A lot of produce is sitting on the tables when you first get in the church and you can make donations and that money goes to various charities." For those interested in some of the produce – just make sure you call first as indicated by the note on the scarecrow.
