Vegetable Garden Grows
St Hilary’s Community Vegetable Garden consists of 22 individual plots, all located behind a low fence, dedicated to helping people in our community grow healthy food for themselves and those they care for every season.
Our gardeners represent all age groups and include our daycare and members from our local community. We would love to welcome you to this ministry. Please contact the Church Office about how you can help us take care of God’s creation and help feed God’s people.

During a Community Garden planning meeting, the scripture discussed and analyzed was John 6: 1-13. The key event in the scripture is undoubtably Jesus feeding five thousand people with two fish and five barley loaves and later asking the disciples to collect the fragments which ended up filling twelve baskets. So when one reflects on their day to day life, we would imagine that it would be impossible to feed five thousand people with two fish and five barley loaves but the parable offers an interesting thought, “Maybe we do not need as much as we think we do”. This particularly applies to food. How often do we over eat? How much food is wasted?
