Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest
Gardening Ministries

You may not realize it, but there are three distinct gardening ministries currently in development at Heavenly Rest: The St. Francis Memorial Pet Garden and the Memorial Garden/Columbarium both at the west end of the Nave; and the Community Garden Project located at 2434 South 2nd Street. They are all in various stages of growth as time, talent and treasure allow.


During the month of May, two gardening activities have been planned: on Saturday the 13th, the Community Garden Project will hold their 2nd Annual Spring Planting Day from 8:00 - 12:00 pm. They welcome your labor and donations of plants, gardening implements and the like.


The following Tuesday, the 16th, the Eden Gardeners who maintain the Columbarium Memorial Garden will gather at Jan Henson's house as a thank you to everyone who helped bring it back to life after the harsh winter weather knocked a lot of our plants out of commission.

If you are interested in any of these gardening projects, please call the church office at (325) 677-2091 and we will forward your name to the appropriate team leaders.
