Community Gardening - We have 8 raised garden boxes ready for people to adopt and garden for the summer, then harvest the vegetables for themselves.  If you are interested in one of the garden boxes call church office at (563)323-2765.  Gardening boxes are FREE to adopt.

We have an open garden outside of the fenced area that produce from that area will be available to anyone wanting to pick it when it is ready to be harvested.
