just.good.food was a project of three synods of the Presbyterian Church (USA) that began in the fall of 2012 and formally ended in the spring of 2016. The mission of the project was to create and strengthen partnerships between PC(USA) congregations and organizations that provide food for those who need it by: Planting Gardens, Building Community, and Distributing Food. More than 50 congregations in 10 states participated and raised (officially) nearly 10,000 lbs of food. (Unofficially the amount of food was much higher but we learned that gardeners aren’t that crazy about logging data in computers!) The archives can be found at just-good-food.org
School's out for summer! It MUST be time to garden. And maybe even harvest. We've heard from FPC Palestine that they are well under way this season with new raised beds. How about the rest of you? How are things at FPC in Portage IN? Tippecane in Milwaukee WI? Covenant Pres in Des Moines?
Thanks to the good folks at FPC Palestine for getting us started this year! It's still snowing on and off in Wisconsin so we haven't been in the garden much ---- yet! But what about you? Are your seedlings in? Are you planting?
Line your garden walkways with newspaper and straw. At the end of the growing season, the straw and newspaper become a dark, crumbly compost that you can add to the beds for the next growing season.
