Spring is Bustin’ Out All Over!

Mar 30, 2021 | Beacon, Justice, News

It’s time to start gardening delicious organic food and beautiful dahlias!  Our new raised beds (both pictured) were built by Nick Langrock and Kyle Velasco, as Eagle Scout projects.  We are so grateful to all involved with these projects for creating the space at East Shore for a lot of learning, health, and fun!  Other areas on our grounds are also being planned to grow a variety of edibles.  And home gardening connections are also encouraged.

The P-Patch Team is collaborating with RE to provide two intergenerational activities for members and families to help grow wonderful plants at home and/or at East Shore.

Come help with East Shore’s garden.  Plant seeds, veggie starts, and perennials being relocated from the old P-Patch.  We will practice safe health precautions by wearing masks and distancing. Learn more and sign up here!

Eventually we plan to donate food from our gardens to those in need in our community.  If we are able to have in-person worship services this summer or fall, we can contribute to the P-Patch after service produce table.  Funds from that are donated to local food justice organizations.

Your assistance and ideas for how we can make these programs most meaningful and memorable are welcome.  Please contact Ann Fletcher (P-Patch chair) or amanda alice uluhan (Director of Religious Education and P-Patch staff liaison).
