WestWind Community Garden
Plant Hope – Grow Faith
“Plant Hope—Grow Faith” is the motto of WestWind Church Community Garden. The garden, formed in 2011, 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 underserved 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. 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, created for those with limited physical abilities. In 2023 we added drip irrigation capability to each raised bed. 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. 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. We are a pollinator friendly space with the vegetable garden and a nearby Butterfly Garden, plus a Memorial Garden with perennial plants and flowers. We enjoy teamwork, social interaction, gardening tips, and practical gardening experiences at our monthly Garden Care Days. Gardening classes and other resources are offered periodically as we strive to educate and to be good stewards of this beautiful place.
