Adam in the garden
Much thanks to Noah Campbell, pastor of First Baptist Church here in Wilmington, for the inspirational message and GFGH plug on his church's sign on Locust Street downtown. We've all got gardens on our mind this week, as we ready for the growing season and begin the garden builds around town, as well as the start of the expansion of our community garden.
Indeed, it's going to be a busy week. National Gardening Month continues for a third week today. The community garden is slated to get a 20-plot upgrade either today or tomorrow. On Thursday, the college is hosting the first annual Food Symposium, which we are excited to be a part of. And Saturday marks Global Youth Service Day as well as WC's annual Quake and Aftershock, both of which are service related days which will bring students and volunteers out into the community for a day of service.
As part of the Quake, we'll be building garden beds at the Clinton County Youth Council and retro-fitting some dilapidated garden planters in front of Sugartree Ministries.
So check back often this week; there will be lots of updates.
