The Chelsea Community Garden provides our community with the opportunity to plant vegetables for their own use as well as give to our neighbors through the Beans and Rice outreach ministry at St. Catherine’s
Members of the church started the community garden in 2012 and made progress in 2013 with many new families joining and actively participating. Our Deacon, Clyde Pearce, led the initial effort, as there was serious clearing and tilling to be done for soil preparation. In 2014, we moved the garden from its initial location to a new site on the Chelsea side of King’s Home Road. With the installation of our temporary buildings in the Fall of 2018, the garden space was covered up by a new driveway and water run-off pond. We anticipate that the garden will be rebuilt in 2020 behind our new worship space, bigger and better than ever!
All are welcome to participate! For more information about the community garden, please contact Brent McLarty.
