A food bank garden was constructed in April 2010 in the old nursery play yard at church as a way to raise food and provide locally for the poor and needy. The youth and young adults assisted in building the raised beds and planting vegetable seeds and plants. Various church members donated plants and maintained the garden throughout the summer. Healthy produce (including sugar peas, beets, onions, cabbage, carrots, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash) are harvested all summer and delivered to local food banks or neighbors in need.
Blaine members are encouraged to bring extra harvested produce from their own gardens to church for distribution. We thank God for the blessings he has given us this year in support of this project.
