(from Anathoth Community Garden’s brochure)
“plant gardens and eat what they produce … seek the shalom of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its shalom you will find your shalom.” (Jer. 29:5,7)
Thanks to the generosity and vision of a Cedar Grove family, five acres were set aside for Anathoth Community Garden, a ministry in church-supported agriculture. By “planting gardnes and eating what they produce,” we will seek the peace of Cedar Grove.
Anathoth’s mission is to provide tasty vegetables to its members, serve as a teaching center for sustainable agriculture, and build community across racial, economic, and religious boundaries.
