Friendship UMC Community Garden

Friendship UMC Community Garden: We grow vegetables for our neighbors in need and those in our congregation. Fresh vegetables are distributed through a local food pantry and during a monthly community meal at the church. The garden produce is incorporated into the monthly community meal as well. Children attending the weekly Kingdom Kids program help to plant and the garden is available to the entire congregation to pick what they need.
