Mt. Pleasant Community Garden


IThe Mt. Pleasant Community Garden is an outreach ministry of Mt. Pleasant Church of the Brethren. The goal of the garden is to glorify God by utilizing our resources to grow community relationships as we work together to alleviate hunger. Since its inception in 2011, the garden has donated over 80,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to the Stark County Hunger Task Force. The garden is managed by church personnel and maintained by community volunteers.

In addition, the garden offers 10’x20’ plots for those who desire to garden for their personal use. The church provides the initial tillage and access to water, while the gardeners provide their inputs and tools. Novice gardeners may reserve one plot and experienced gardeners may reserve multiple plots. Each plot may be reserved with a $10 deposit which is returned at the end of the season provided the garden rules have been observed and the garden has not been abandoned.

For more information on volunteering in the church garden or reserving a plot for the 2018 season, contact Julie Myers at gardending@msn.com or call the church office at 330-499-5131.
