The Gardeners of Eden

“The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the birds for mirth, one is nearer to God’s heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth.”

The “Gardeners of Eden,” a group of gardeners (and weeders and planters) was started about 10 years ago. In response to the late Craig Hibben’s dedication to beautifying and care-taking our church property, the Gardeners began by helping to maintain many of the beautiful flower beds and plantings surrounding our church.

Since then, the Gardeners group has grown to approximately 12 members, all of whom are assigned a particular area of the church property. The adage “many hands make light work” is certainly true in this case. Sometimes we garden together, other times we garden on our own, but, always, we garden with loving concern for our gardens and each other.

Our Gardeners weed, plant, water, weed some more (!), transplant and share in the joy of helping to make our Church’s property the beautiful and welcoming place it is.

We welcome new gardeners: no experience necessary, on-the-job training, flexible volunteer schedule, and no committee meetings (except perhaps an end-of-the year tea). If you would like to join us or want to know more about the Gardeners, contact Judy Chessa.
