Church's garden provides fresh veggies to area food banks
Volunteer gardeners have learned to get creative with recipes now that the harvesting is under way in the community garden at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in North Asheville, N.C. But these gardeners aren't filling their baskets just for themselves. The broccoli they picked was delivered to the Asheville-Buncombe Community Christian Ministry's Veterans Restoration Quarters in Oteen, N.C., and volunteers took collard greens to the Steadfast House women's shelter. Twenty-five families with various skill levels spend between two and four hours a week, working side by side, planting and weeding and harvesting because they were drawn together by the idea of enjoying and sharing the fruits of their labor.
