United Methodist of Port grows produce for the needy

Members of the contemporary worship service plant the first seedlings.

The United Methodist Church of Port Washington raised $3359 this past spring to build 19 raised beds to grow produce for local food pantries. All the produce is going to end up with people who need it most in our community.

The efforts of more than 30 church members helped to get all 19 beds assembled, filled them with around 30 cubic yards of soil from North Shore Garden Center and a donation of 200 bags of organic garden soil from Scotts-MiracleGro, and planted in time for vegetables to be donated this season.
