Church garden to supply food pantry
SYCAMORE – Something new will cut the cost of providing fresh vegetables to the clients of the Sycamore Food Pantry at the Sycamore United Methodist Church.
The church has installed two raised vegetable beds behind the church to raise produce for the food pantry and for homebound church members. The gardens were installed with the help of the DeKalb County Community Gardens, and the project is funded by the church’s Caring Ministry Network, supervised by the Rev. Harlene Harden and led by Master Gardener Carole Cook-John.
Cook-John had the idea for the garden. It was approved first by Harden and then by the church. The garden is planted with tomato, cucumber and pepper plants, and lima beans are coming up. There are plans to use the garden to teach church children about growing plants, and a grape tomato plant is specifically set aside for the children to tend and eat from.
