Good Stewardship... from seeding to transformation of a community garden

Updated: Jun 17

Our Life Coaches are asked to watch over our participants lives... meeting, discussing, debating, encouraging, motivating and in the end, helping them to transform and grow. 

The Good Lord asks us to be good stewards of our land as was described and encouraged in Genesis 2:15, "The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it." (ESV)

On Saturday, May 25th, we planted four beds. Below, you'll see a group containing: participants, volunteers, and board members.... not to mention a spouse and their young son.

Tomatoes, herbs, and other vegetables
The Completed Beds...

Welcome Home Collaborative owns six old residences in OTR, Northside and Colerain. Some residences are fortunate to have some space to grow a garden that will reap: tomatoes (several varieties), hot peppers, spices (basil, oregano, chives, etc.), cabbage, and other vegetables. 

Two beds done... two to go....
Volunteer, Board and Participant collaborating!

After planting, we also ask our participants to water, weed, monitor and manage what is grown. And, then they are able to eat and enjoy the fruits (and vegetables of course) of their work and stewardship or gift it to others!

Volunteers, spouses, children, and participants posing over completed garden!
All hands (and generations) on deck!

We look forward to other opportunities to allow the Holy Spirit to work in and through us! We will update this post in a few weeks and we will shed more light as well on the work of our Life Coaches and Participants as they play the role of Gardener, Roots, Vines and the offspring Fruits...
