Giving Garden

Images from nature can be found throughout scripture because they resonate well with the human experience. We understand the cycle of life (and death) from what we see in nature, and we get glimpses of God’s relationship with us by exploring the relationships of living things in nature. The abundance of God’s love is evident in the abundance of life described in the creation story and all that follows.

Humans intersect with nature to create gardens, and provide an added layer of importance and consideration. The Garden of Eden describes a paradise and a place for an encounter with God. The ‘agony in the garden’ where Jesus prayed before being arrested, and the garden-like setting of the empty tomb signifying the resurrection all help us draw more deeply into the mystery of faith. It is in a garden where the wheat and grapes are tended to become the bread and wine we offer, the Body and Blood of Christ.

We celebrate this nourishment and sustenance. Help plant, maintain, and harvest the vegetable garden in the Pax Christi "Giving Garden" each spring.

Each year more than 1,200 pounds of produce are donated to the local PROP food shelf serving our neighbors in need. You are invited to be part of the crew for the coming season. Join us to help plan, plant, weed and water, or harvest. Come once or come often. Families are welcome too!
