First Jefferson Unitarian Universalist Church

Community Garden

First Jefferson has a community garden that can be used by everyone - church members, church friends, and anyone in the community. There are several plots laid out, and some are still available for folks to choose as their own. Here's your chance to grow vegetables for your table, flowers, or anything legal. :) The garden is located next to the rear parking lot, next to the wildflower meadow.

community gardenWe all chip in and we all share some of the work as we are able. Everybody doesn’t have to be able to pick up a shovel or a hoe or get down on their hands and knees. You can bring your coffee grounds and vegetable scraps from home and put them in the compost pile. We will even provide a bucket for you. You can bring plants or seeds for others to put into their plots. One of the best things someone can do at this stage is to let lots of people know that it exists and that it is here to raise food to share, to create a community of generous gardeners who enjoy what they do and to provide a friendly and welcoming environment for anyone who is the least bit curious about how to grow their own food. The garden has also set aside an area for a large community plot which will grow healthy produce specifically dedicated for those in need.

First Saturday group gardening days.

Starting Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 9am we will be holding monthly group gardening days on the first Saturday of each month. This will be a great time to visit with community gardeners and find out about the opportunities and ongoings at the garden. We will be planting, cleaning the common areas and working on our compost.

We now have a total of twenty garden spaces and have 3 spaces open and available. Spaces are $35/year. For more information, contact Karl the church administrator at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or Connie Nolen.
