Purpose of the Community Garden:
St. Timothy’s Community Garden is a facility that will be used to teach children and families about growing fresh vegetables; anyone from the surrounding community: PQ, RB, Poway and Mira Mesa, are welcome to rent plots and enjoy the results of their efforts. St. Timothy’s Church, in cooperation with a team of volunteers, constructs 8-foot by 4-foot raised garden beds for planting of vegetables. Once planted, the Community Garden will be maintained by the Community Gardeners and our chief garden stewards; Sam Herrick and Skip Kirby, are responsible for overall garden maintenance. Our garden committee is made up of members of St. Timothy’s congregation.
Our garden is able to provide a variety of benefits for our church and surrounding community. Veggies are given out to church members throughout the growing season. Surplus produce is donated to local food banks and to the San Diego Food Bank. Our goals include providing garden box plots for aspiring community gardeners and produce from the main church gardens for those in need. Our annual fundraiser is at Sunday church services in the month of August to assist in supporting the garden.
