Saugus Community Vegetable Garden needs volunteers


By The Rev. John Beach, St. John’s Episcopal Church

  We are seeking interested persons to volunteer in the tending of the Saugus Community Vegetable Garden at St. John’s church. This is an excellent opportunity to work with other town folk in producing vegetables for those who are food insecure. This will also give you a chance to work on gardening skills.

  • Receive seeds, pots and soil to begin the growing of tomato plants in your home or classroom which can later be planted in the ground when the ground is warmer. These could be delivered to your home.
  • Assist in the preparing of soil and planting of seeds at a community work day in mid-May
  • Volunteer for half an hour each week to assist in the watering and the weeding of the garden. This could be done to fulfill community service hours required of students.
  • Assist in the harvesting and distribution of vegetables in the late summer.
  • Invite your friends and neighbors to participate in this project.

  We are very excited about this initiative and are looking forward to meeting some of you at the Zoom meeting in April. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact The Rev. John Beach at 774-961-9881 or email Dee Lemay: dee180@verizon.net
