Garden Update!
Yes, I know it's been too long since we've updated---sorry, friends.

We've been SUPER BUSY in the garden! The Tater Tots' Plot is built and full of tomato plants! Kids from the community came out and planted them and also painted the fence! It was a fun filled day to be sure, albiet messy!

We've got several veggies in the ground now! Tomatos, Potatos, Okra, Cucumbers, Squash, Peas, Carrots, Beets, Cabbage, Lettuce, Onions, Peppers, Watermelons, Cantalope, Turnip Greens...and some I'm probably leaving off due to forgetfulness.

We've also got some flowers in the garden for boquets for the elderly and sick. A little cheer for them!

We celebrated a "firstfruits dinner",  by inviting all the Pastors from the respective congregations to share in a meal together and partake from some of the first fruits...Turnip Greens!

We'd like to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to Moulder's Mini Barns!!! They've really been helpful in moving our mini barn and assisting in Garden Work as well.

It's always busy @ the garden!!!!

We had a VERY productive workday with several in attendance; all pitching in to mow, till, plant, and shovel compost and mulch! It's so wonderful to see people come together, free from the walls of their church buildings and work as one to help the community!

Remember to save your Compostable products and donate them to the garden!

You're always welcome to come to the Garden and help too!

Welcome to Shelbyville's Garden of Life!

This is the Garden site behind the Tree of Life church building.

This is not about a single congregation or a small group of people. Nor is it about anyone person's desire for the spotlight. This is Shelbyville's Garden of Life that brings life and hope to all. The only leader we have is the head of the body, Jesus, the Risen Christ!


This is the first Compost pile we have built together! You can help!!!! Save and donate all of your compostable materials!
