WestWind Community Garden
Plant Hope – Grow Faith
“Plant Hope—Grow Faith” is the motto of WestWind Church Community Garden. The garden is the focus of our Hunger Team Ministry at WestWind Church. We foster community and generosity. Our purpose is to grow healthy, organic produce for food needy people in our community and for our garden families and friends. We welcome members of the community to “adopt-a-plot” in the garden to help develop common bonds, community spirit and interaction. Kindergarten classes at the neighboring school have had their own garden plot here for several years. We encourage participation of young and old, beginners and experienced gardeners and volunteers. We learn as we grow!
There are 35 raised garden beds, including three elevated beds for those with limited physical abilities. We have on-site composting. Fruit trees, blackberries, grapes, and a beautiful grove of mature shade trees enhance the property. The garden promotes organic methods of gardening. Our beehives house those important pollinators to our vegetables and to a nearby Butterfly Garden of perennial plants and flowers. Each gardener is asked to donate 50% of their produce to the disadvantaged people we help support who may not otherwise get fresh fruit and vegetables. This includes a senior living center and an outreach organization benefiting at-risk youth. We enjoy social interaction, shared lessons on nutrition and food preparation, gardening tips, practical gardening experience, and teamwork at our monthly Garden Improvement Days. Free gardening classes and other resources are offered as we strive to educate and to be good stewards of this beautiful place.
