G4O–Gardening for Others

For the past several years, we have been G4O, Gardening for Others. The first gardens were in the back of the church–smaller plots as we began the experiment of growing produce for our neighbors in need. In the Fall of 2012, part of the front lawn was plowed up to put in a larger community garden. Clearly visible from the street, our garden is a witness and an invitation to be partners with God’s Creation, using our land for more than grass that needs to be mowed, and providing healthy produce for the food panty of the Falls Church Community Service Council (FCS). If you want to know more, or to volunteer, contact our Garden Guru.

Great Haul from CCUMC for FCS Stuff-the-Truck Food Drive

THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the Falls Church Community Service Council’s (FCS) Stuff-the-Truck Food Drive! We were able to contribute about 200 lbs. of non-perishable food items along with around 30 lbs. of fresh produce straight from our Gardening 4 Others front garden. Your contribution goes to help stock the shelves of the FCS-maintained Falls Church area food pantry. CCUMC is a supporting partner congregation of FCS.StufftheTruckpic
