St. Timothy’s Faith & Grace Garden 2020 – Celebrating 20 Years of Feeding the Hungry

On Sunday afternoon we will be picking the garden clean before the hard freeze. There are plenty of peppers to rescue, and broccoli, peas and lettuce to pick. We will be working on mulched ground so even if it rains earlier in the day it should be fine to harvest in the afternoon.

Please come out and help us finish the gardening season!

We ask that volunteers coming to the garden observe the CDC’s guidelines, Prevention of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
including frequent handwashing, and avoiding direct physical exchanges with other gardeners. Most importantly, if you are feeling ill, have family members or friends who are ill, have been to a location where COVID-19 is prevalent, or are at-risk or immunocompromised, please refrain from volunteering in the garden.

As always, volunteers should dress for the weather, wear hard soled shoes, and bring garden gloves if you have them. Gloves are also available at the garden if you do not have them.

If you cannot volunteer your time, consider a financial donation to continue this important work. Send your check to St. Timothy’s, 1020 24th Street, West Des Moines, IA, 50266. Please note Faith & Grace Garden in the memo line.
