Impressive Results

Despite the rain, we were still able to get 13 raised beds constructed on April  16th!

We couldn’t have done it without all of your help.  I am truly grateful!

 Here are some pictures from today!

Garden Plot Information

If you are interested in having a garden plot, please find the enclosed agreement which will need to be signed and returned to the church with the garden rental fee of $20 to reserve your plot for the season.  These funds will be used to cover the construction and maintenance costs of the garden.  If you are interested in a plot and are unable to pay the fee please contact us at the Email below.  However, if you would like to make a donation to the church c/o the Community Garden that would also be welcome.  Please read carefully, and if you have any concerns or questions, please contact us by Email at info@wesleygarden.org or call Jason Walters at 484-894-7719.  We will have additional copies of this form available  during our construction/work meetings as well.
