What is a Unity Garden?
A Unity Garden is much like a Community Garden but all produce is available to all people free of charge. Our Unity Garden was built in 2018, in accordance with God’s Command in Leviticus 19, to provide for the poor and the stranger by leaving the corners and edges of one’s field to harvest.
How does it work?
Taste and See. The garden is initially planted and tended by members of the St David’s congregation but all are welcome. Simply come to the garden, read one of our information guides for guidance, pick what you need, take it home and enjoy. There is no cost to you. This is our gift to the community. This garden is also a community and spiritual space. Feel free to use our playground, pray in the space, or simply relax under the trees.
What if I don’t know how to use these vegetables or herbs?
No problem, we will help you out. Pamphlets are available in the display box in the garden to take for your convenience. You may also contact the parish at (574) 264-4039, or stop by and we will be more than happy to help you out. You are also invited to our First Wednesday Free Community Suppers, the first Wednesday of the month at 6 pm. We will be using produce from our garden in some of the dishes.
How can I help?
A garden of this size needs regular maintenance (particularly weeding). If you see something that looks out of place feel free to play in the dirt. The garden is entirely free to all who come, however, if you would like to make a monetary donation in support of this ministry, funds may be mailed to the church or delivered in person. We would love to meet you.
Radishes picked fresh from our garden.
