Renew is excited about the utilizing the land next to the church as a community use space. In the immediate, we are inviting you, our neighbors, to help us revitalize the pre-existing 14 plots of garden mounds into an active community pea-patch. This community garden is, in our eyes, a microcosm of our overall identity and vision: bringing renewal to people, neighborhoods, and the Earth. Through gardening, we can together fight a culture of isolation by building community and connecting as neighbors around common ground. The garden can also be good for the body and soul, by getting all of us outside and “in the dirt,” and by providing community members the opportunity to be outside in green space and allowing church members a chance for spiritual formation through the practice of Creation Care. Also, fruits and vegetables harvested in the garden can be circulated into our foodbank ministry or donated to others in need.
Our first goal is to grow community!
It is our sincere hope that this will be a place of friendship and teamwork! Get to know each other, have fun, and enjoy being outside!
Where? On the north side of 164th Street SW in the field just east of Renew Church at Manor Way.
What? An organic community garden! Each person or family signs up to care for a 16x4 foot plot for the season
(March – September). Meet other gardeners!
Have fun! Learn how to grow vegetables, flowers, and fruit in the Pacific Northwest! You choose what to grow, provide
your own seeds or plants, and you take home your harvest.
How much? We ask gardeners to make a donation to help cover garden expenses for the season.
The 2021 season donation is $20/plot
When? The garden will re-open in March for the 2021 season. There is no winter gardening this year. Choose one or more of the community days to attend each week (see calendar). You are welcome to tend your plot at other times too, but please join us as at least once a month for these community work times! We’ll have lots of fun! *Please note these “community” times are on hold until it is safer to meet as a group. Gardeners are encouraged to socially distance and wear masks while in the garden. Thanks for keeping us all safe! Gardeners can work in their plots anytime
they have free time.
