You can grow your own food. We can help.

St, Francis Disciples Community Garden

In Cary, North Carolina, in the Piedmont section of the state and adjacent to the famed Research Triangle Park, land is a valuable resource.  In Cary, North Carolina hunger is also a crying need.  Here St. Francis United Methodist Church wishes to plant its mustard seed of faith in a Disciples Community Garden. The church community seeks to gather, grow, and give. The church's administrative bodies and lay leaders wholeheartedly support this new, innovative project and view it as good stewardship of our land. Likewise others outside in the general community such as North Carolina State students, nearby schools, and others have expressed an interest.

The Disciples Community Garden working with its partner the Wake Interfaith Food Shuttle, a nonprofit that collects and distributes produce to hungry in our area, seeks to involve the people, families and ministries of the church to come along side others in the community to plant a garden on the church's property, grow bonds between families and friends, learn about gardens, gardening, seeds, and growing together with plans to return to the community needy from the bounty of the garden.
