The garden is a place where we are growing relationships and sharing the love of Christ.
We are building a supportive community based on the foundations of Christ. Grow Together has started seven community gardens throughout the Austin area and has two more gardens planned for this fall.
We use the garden as a way to build friendships, foster community and help get people out of isolation. For information on each of our gardens and how you can get involved, visit Grow Together’s website: www.grow-together.org
Through our serving, we want to show Christ’s light to those we serve. Our support in the garden community includes:
- facilitating small group Bible studies at each of our garden sites
- developing friendships and discipling those we meet at the garden
- organizing community events to foster a greater sense of community
- teaching ESL classes through River City Hope Street,
- teaching leadership classes/training
- providing food to families from the gardens.
Please take a moment to view our Grow Together Film Trailer to learn more about our ministry.
We would love to build more gardens throughout Austin. Please let us know if you Church, organization, or neighborhood would like our help in getting a garden going for you. We want to see churches and communities use gardening to come together across Austin and build relationship through gardening.
