A portion of land surrounding Beech Grove United Methodist Church, in the Driver community of Suffolk, is doing a new thing. The congregation has started a new outreach project - a Community Garden - to provide for those in need and to engage the community.
The goal of the project is to transform this portion of land into a successful Community Garden Project, with the purpose of feeding people, building fellowship among church members and the community, and caring for God's creation.
Church and community members are encouraged to help plant, pick and sort the vegetables, which are then available free to anyone who wants local, healthy, and fresh food at no cost. Sharing God's bounty from the Community Garden has become a new way for Beech Grove UMC to share God's love with church and community members.
