If you've been around Kingsway for a while, you probably already know about our Food Pantry. What you may not know is that we planted a garden on our church property last spring to grow nourishing, fresh food to supplement our Food Pantry. It's called the Provision Garden and is the brainchild of MaryBeth Haggard. God gave her a vision for using her gardening skills to tangibly express the love and provision of our Heavenly Father to the Midlothian community.
On March 30, we have an opportunity after the morning service to help MaryBeth start seeds in the foyer. Once they sprout, they will be given away as part of the Easter food boxes we're delivering to families who have visited our Food Pantry this year. MaryBeth is also planning a church-wide planting day on Sunday, May 4.
Here's a short list of supplies we still need to collect for the Provision Garden:
- Potting Soil
- Small Pots
- A Tiller
- Organic Manure or Compost
- Hand Trowels
- A Spigot and Stand for Our Rain Barrel
- Tomato Cages
- Pepper Stakes
- Cucumber Trellis
Contact Marybeth Haggard for more information on how to get involved!
