Community Garden

Eager to get your hands dirty? Consider joining the NRUMC Community Garden! Grow vegetables for yourself, and also for the Inter-faith Food Shuttle, which distributes it to those who are hungry on a regular basis.  

NRUMC’s community garden is located across the street (overflow parking lot) from the church. Lease a 5’ X 10’ raised bed ($25) or a full size 5’ X 20’ ($50) raised bed with complete discretion of what vegetables to grow with the understanding that at least 50% of your harvest will go to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.

Garden members participate twice a month in Wednesday/Saturday/Sunday group harvesting activities and perform an additional 4 hours of community workday labor during the year. What a great way to experience community and friendship with your fellow church members! Individuals, circles, and families are all welcome to participate in this ministry. Green thumbs are helpful, but not required! If you are not interested in leasing a garden bed, we can always use volunteers to help with the picking.

Each year, our garden volunteers grow and donate about 6,000 lbs of fresh vegetables to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. The Food Shuttle provides fresh vegetables and fruits to local individuals/families in need. Visitors to the garden are always welcomed!

For more information, email Julie Barnes or call her at 919-624-8256 or Pam Hartigan or call her at 919-847-9930. Space is limited.
