First United Methodist Church partners with Growing Together 

fmuc1For the second year, Growing Together Giving Garden was invited to partner with one of our neighborhood churches, First United Methodist Church (FUMC), to participate in their annual Sunday WORKSHIP Day of service. Every year FUMC church members spend one Sunday morning volunteering at various organizations throughout the Valley. With the recent transition to our new garden location, “Timing was perfect,” says Judy Walden, one of our garden volunteers, and a member of FUMC. “The garden has a need and our church wants to serve in the community, so it was a perfect morning match!”

15 First UMC volunteers, plus a few of our garden regulars, joined us on Sunday, February 28 to move dirt, plant flower pots, build our shelving and reorganize our new garden shed, water trees, reinstall our compost fence, set up the compost bins and enjoy fun and fellowship together on a beautiful Sunday morning. “This is what the garden is all about…providing delicious fruits and vegetables to the needy, while making connections and strengthening our ties to the community. We are here to not only serve those less fortunate, but to bring together people of all ages, experiences, faiths, backgrounds…all with a beautiful common goal – to share love and serve others.”
