Open Hands Garden

Open Hands Garden

Open Hands Garden is a ministry established in the Spring of 2015. It currently consists of eight raised bed plots each 4ft x 8ft and 1ft deep all constructed with the volunteer efforts of many members of our church community. One of the beds is taller (3ft) to be accessible and enabling to all volunteers. In addition, the garden has rain water harvesting capability. The garden's primary goal is to provide fresh produce to the guests of the Open Hands Food Pantry. In addition, it will provide opportunities for church members as well as the surrounding community to work and learn together on a variety of garden activities and help feed the hungry in Oakland County .

No experience required to work in the garden. Regular volunteer times led by a member of the Garden Steering Committee are Thursday evenings 6:30-8pm and Saturday mornings 9-10:30am. Most times will be used to harvest and prepare produce for distribution at the food pantry. Other activities may include garden maintenance such as planting, weeding and irrigation. Sign up for as many or as few time slots that fit your schedule. Not a garden season long commitment. Use this link to schedule your times.
