We are planning to have the St. John’s Community Garden again this year … and need your help

Dear Friends,

  Greetings. Once again, this year, St. John’s will be sponsoring our community garden. We are inviting all interested persons to join us in producing vegetables for those who are suffering from food insecurity in Saugus.

  In particular, we are looking for help in the following ways

  • If you are able to grow a few seedlings in your home, we would like to bring the seeds, soil, pots, and instructions in the next few weeks.
  • We would like to invite any who are available to help for an hour to help us prepare the garden on Friday, May 13th and/or Saturday, May 14th between 9 a.m. and noon.
  • Assist in the planting of crops on Friday, May 27th and/or Saturday, May 28th sometime between 9 and noon. We will be having a brief service of the blessing of the ground on the Friday.
  • Assist for an hour a week in the tending of the crops (weeding and watering) over the course of the summer.
  • Assist in the harvesting of the crops in September and delivering them to the Saugus Food Pantry

  If you are able to assist, or if you are interested in contributing to the garden, please let me know. I am looking forward to working with you.
