The Northeast Community Garden at the Presbyterian Church broke ground in June, 2018, on church property west of the church buildings. Phase 1 had 8 plots, 10' x 20', each worked by a gardening family, with one for church members. Phase 2 was to increase the number of plots to 32, install in-ground water lines, and encourage drip irrigation, The gardeners, many of whom are recent immigrants working in the local beef processing plant, often express their appreciation for the opportunity to grow their own food.
The City of Garden City provides the water without charge, and grants were received from Western Kansas Community Foundation and the Presbytery of Southern Kansas. Funds from the Ruth Powell memorial at GCPC were used for start-up.
Please contact the church for information on how to be included in this special community of gardeners.
