Community Garden Celebration 2022
Saint George’s Episcopal Church celebrated Palm Sunday in a special way this year. After the church service, members of our congregation joined the New Roots Gardeners for a garden clean-up, followed by lunch and fellowship.
New Roots is part of the International Rescue Committee, and the gardeners are refugees, asylees and other immigrants. Since most of the gardeners are of Russian background and speak little or no English, our Music Director who speaks Russian translated all that was said in English to the gardeners and all that was said by the gardeners in Russian for the rest of us. The New Roots Gardeners have done an amazing job on their plots. They are thankful to be able to grow fresh food for their families and to share with others, but also to be outdoors in a wonderful environment. This special Palm Sunday Celebration made us all aware that having our garden is a blessing for many and a good way for St. George’s to serve and love those around us.
