Below is a request from the pastor in charge of the "Community Farming Ministry" - Hopefully someone would like to help with this? Maybe our newly freed from school young people?? You could make it a fun group outing?
Please email Hildy at firstname.lastname@example.org I'll get you the directions. ==========================================================
Pastor Migde has asked for volunteer assistance at the community garden. Please disseminate as you find appropriate among your congregants.
Every Saturday, weather permitting, volunteers are needed and welcome at the farm. Volunteer activities include weeding, staking plants, spreading topsoil, mulch, wood chips, etc., cutting bamboo, general ground maintenance as well as participating in laying irrigation systems, assembling shelving or hanging system for the shed, and other special projects. Volunteers can come anytime between 10:00 and 3:00 and volunteer a long as they want. I suggest they wear shoes appropriate for muddy conditions and bring their own work gloves, sunscreen, insect repellent, water and snacks. Anyone wishing to bring personal hand tools for weeding should label them with their name. Parking is limited so carpooling is recommended.
I will be using SignUp Genius to schedule volunteers and will get that link to you as soon as I have it set up, For this coming Saturday, I ask that you just get the request for volunteers out and ask that they respond to me if they plan to show up at the farm and to get the address/directions if they are needed.
Thanks for your assistance in getting the word out! More info to come soon! =================================================================
Your support of our MISSIONS have accomplished so much this year! Here are some of our major Help Projects this year:
Yasir Abed with his new (used) car. The smile says it all! ($5,000)
The Shed and Shade tarp ($2,300) we funded for Pastor Migde’s Project: He received permission to use some farmland to plant and grow food for their families and for Sale at the various Farmers Markets. YOUR generosity provided the money for the shed as well as a Tent Tarp for shade for the families to have a service and talk. There are 10 plots planted by 10 families and groups. I understand that the various countries represented grow in different styles and different types of food.
Thank You – Thank You – Thank You !!
