FAMILY GARDEN FUN
Christians Caring for Creation Ministry cordially invites everyone to get involved in "Family Garden Fun." This is an on-going hands-on activity Sundays after church services in the church garden area. Come exchange gardening ideas and plants, take advantage of knowledgeable gardeners in our community, and encourage everyone, especially our children, to grow plants by showing them how much fun it can be. You may bring old clothes if you wish, but old shirts, gloves, and tools are available, as well as containers to take plants home.
The schedule of July Sunday events in the garden after services will be as follows:
July 7 --- Transplanting seedlings and flowers
July 14 --- Mulching, starting new compost, general maintenance
July 21 --- Irrigation, plant maintenance, idea exchange
July 28 --- Maintaining plants- deadheading and pruning, plant and idea exchange
Please join us and have fun in the garden!
