The Purposeof St. Timothy Episcopal Church's Community Garden:
St.Timothy's Community Garden is a facility that will be used to teach childrenand families about growing fresh vegetables.
OurGarden began in 2013 (See Photos).
St.Timothy's Church, in cooperation with a team of volunteers, cleared and gradedthe North-East end of our church property. We then constructed 8-foot by 4-foot raised garden beds for planting of vegetables and other produce. Once planted, eachGarden Bed is maintained by the individual Community Gardeners.
Roma Weaver is the ProjectCoordinator. She is the primary contact for plot rentals and is responsible forgarden planning.
Sam Herrick is the Head Farmer. Heis responsible for garden maintenance and overall church plot.
Our garden committee includes members of St. Timothy’s congregation,Master Gardeners, and others from the community interested in the garden.
This past year our garden was able to provide a variety of benefits toour church and community.
Veggies were given out to church members throughoutthe growing season.
Pumpkins were donated to the Discovery IslePreschool during the Halloween Season.
Producebelongs to each Community Gardener, except 10% of the produce is normally donatedto the San Diego Food Bank.
One plot has been designated to be used by thechurch’s flower guild for growing flowers for the church.
Trees were planted by our local Boy Scouts Troop 688, and the irrigation system for the trees was completed. This allowed ourScouts to complete their Eagle Scout projects and provided our garden with a smallgrove of fruit trees.
Our plan is to provide30 plots for our Community Gardners, and a FoodForest consisting of Fruit trees that will provide free food for those in need.
