creation care team plant pot luck

Thank you Wesley for all your fantastic donations to our first Creation Care Project at the Washington St Senior Apartments! You were instrumental in providing outdoor seating, planted pots by the doors, an herb garden for cooking, plants/seeds/tools for their new community garden plot, and a special time of fellowship together! We definitely have some wonderful new friends. God graced us with perfect weather and we pray that we accomplished His Plan.

Washington Street residence have designated sides of the building to people for watering. Everything is taking hold and growing well. They are already using the herbs! They have found spots to plant the leftover flowers and have planted tomatoes/etc at their community garden plot. It is still a work in progress but on the docket for this week. One of the residents, Gayle Nord, sat with some of us at church today. I don't know what she was expecting, but I said we are a relaxed church. She agreed approvingly with a smile. Gayle gave me a tour after church and three times said, "Doesn't it just look like home now? " I think it is just what God had in mind! Enjoy the photos.

Several members at Wesley have stepped forward with excitement to begin our work. The Creation Care Team is:

Please reach out to any of us with ideas at any time and come join us if you would like.
