The garden is a Memorial Garden, a garden of benevolence, a garden of love. It is a gift to our community from the God of Love, Jesus the Christ. The first “seeds” for our garden have come from members of the congregation and a designation from the congregation’s memorial funds. These seeds have brought us to the beginning of a journey that will last for many years. Guided by the Holy Spirit we will plow forth until row upon row of our work is accomplished and our community is better nourished. The Lord invites you all to be part of His work on earth strengthening and feeding His children. The garden is made possible by generous donations from the community, and grants from the Alaska Food Policy Council through the Municipality of Anchorage, the Alaska Women's Giving Circle, generous support by the congregation of Lutheran Church of Hope, and support from the Alaska Synod of the ELCA.

Food from the garden in 2018 was sent to Lutheran Social Services Food Pantry, the Tudor Road Gospel Rescue Mission, and to Bean's Cafe.

Brush is hauled

Monday was a day of brush hauling. I was able to get a double snow machine trailer from a friend and we used it to haul brush that had accumulated at the garden site. Special thanks to Rod Voshell for his help on Monday shagging brush. We made three trips to the wood lot and got all of the accumulated limbs and branches off the premises. This will give us more room for cutting and stacking for the rest of the week.

Will be cutting and hauling again on Thursday, July 23. If you have time drop by and lend a hand.
