Got Dirt?

If you garden, farm, or just have dirt, bring a sample of your dirt to church on May 15!  We will be having a Blessing of the Soil on Pentecost Sunday as we look ahead to the impending season of seeding, gardening and weeding and give thanks for the gift of rich soil by which God feeds all of creation.  BYOD—Bring Your Own Dirt!

Rain Barrel Sale

The Gardening group at the United Church in Meadowood is having a rain barrel sale. The group grows vegetables for a local abuse shelter and for a lunch program in the West Broadway area.

These are great-looking rain barrels in several different colours that you can view online. Most cost $60.00. Save on water bills, promote water conservation and reduce landfill waste (they are recycled).

Go to https://rainbarrel.ca/meadowood  Thank you!
