Community_Garden.jpgDid you know that there are over 3,000 families in Cobb County without a car who live more than a mile from a grocery store? There is a sizeable need in our community for access to fresh, healthy food--a need which St. Vincent de Paul diligently works to fill. 
 
As a part of our 8th grade Secret Service program, the teens have been designing a 25x45 ft garden to grow local, organic produce for the community served by St. Vincent de Paul, and as the Fall planting season approaches, we invite you to help us serve! Our needs are many and varied, so please contact Mary Jane, 770-973-2971 to learn more about how to get involved.
 
We really need help with fall planting, watering and weeding, so if you have an hour to spare to play in the dirt, please call Mary Jane. This is a great opportunity for families and teens who want to serve!  The garden is located about one mile from Church.
 
This is a layout of the garden designed by Kate Morales with the 8th Grade Wednesday students, 2011-2012.
