Community Gardening and Beautification

Project Group Name: New Life Southeast Church Green Thumbs Gardening Ministry

Neighborhood: Greater Grand Crossing    Year: 2021

Project Description: This gardening ministry created and maintained greenspaces in their community by planting perennial and annual plants and flowers. Together, they engaged kids and other members of their community through work at 4 different neighborhood sites. After the initial planting and beautification, the group also provided monthly maintenance at each location.

In their Words

"The New Life Southeast Green Thumbs Gardening Ministry is dedicated to bringing healthy food and beauty to the community. ... Many residents state that when they feel down they come and walk by or park by our community garden because it is so beautiful and they begin to feel lifted and better. ... Our goal is to reach out into the community where there is a need for beautification."
