New intergenerational fellowship group! Ages 7 to 87 are invited to attend.
Tending a gardening is a daily activity, just like tending to our faith. Beginning Saturday, August 23 meet weekly with Nancy Borkman through the end of October in the Erik Peterson Memorial Garden and monthly indoors in non-growing season. You can choose between two regularly scheduled gardening times every week to accommodate your busy lives – whichever one you feel fits your schedule better.
Various topics of discussion will center on the similarities between tending a garden and tending to our faith. Each gathering will have a topic focus to learn more about an aspect of growing a garden that corresponds with a faith application. With discussion there will be the usual garden tending activities of picking vegetables, watering, weeding, the how-tos of seed propagation, plant selection, direct sowing, transplanting, digging, harvest schedules, frost protection and general maintenance.
Tuesdays from 6:45 to 7:45 o’clock p.m. (adjusted for light as the fall progresses) and Saturdays from 8:30 to 9:30 o’clock a.m. One topic each week. Monday’s topic will repeat on Saturday.
Refreshments like donuts or coffee cake and a beverage (temperature appropriate for the weather) will be provided.
