Summer heat getting your garden down? Try giving your tomatoes a boost with Epsom Salts

Below is a comprehensive guide on epsom salt for tomato plants. It is completely free and you can find it here: to Happy DIY Home for this article. Other fine articles on gardening are available on their Gardening tab.

Watering and harvesting…can you help?

Volunteer times in the garden are as follows:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
June – Oct 6-8pm 9-11am 6-8pm 9-11am 6-8pm

To volunteer in the garden, please sign-up at:

Why sign-up? It helps us to plan our activities and to communicate, especially when the weather looks bad and we need to cancel.

There are also opportunities to volunteer in the garden by appointment, contact Mark Marshall at 988-5381 or to arrange a convenient time.

We ask that volunteers coming to the garden observe the CDC’s guidelines. If you are not fully vaccinated and wish to volunteer, please let us know and we will arrange to make your time in the garden safe for all.

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.

Here are our harvest and donation results through August 28
