In 2016, UTRGV Department of Agro-ecology and Edinburg First UMC entered into a partnership to transform an unused church lot into vegetable gardens. These gardens will be used for instructing agriculture classes and for growing a community garden. In summer of 2019, work preparing the land for planting began.
UPCOMING EVENT! Wednesday, August 21st from 6:00-8:00 PM, help sow seeds for the fall harvest. Seeds will be provided, but feel free to bring along any seeds from your own garden that you'd like to contribute.
Stephani Kasper, Church Farmer and liaison between EFUMC & UTRGV, oversees the Community Garden project. For more information, contact her at (361)649-8450.
