We have considered utilizing the land behind our church for a garden for several years. As Lutheran Christians we believe we have a unique call to steward (care for) the Earth and to engage with God as co-creators. We also know that many people live near our church who don't have outdoor space but who love to garden. Bringing these two things together is a perfect marriage of us having land to use and grow on and people who want to grow and tend to the Earth. Building a garden for our neighbors to use is just one more way we can care for those around us.
During this first summer we are charging $10 per bed to help cover the cost of water. Once we know more of the true cost of water we may adjust the cost per bed per season next summer. If cost is a barrier, please contact us about a garden scholarship.
We are limiting beds to one per household with the potential to have a second or third depending on demand.
The Lemp family were founding members of Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church (COSLC) and cared deeply for creation & children. They gave a significant bequest to the church in their estate. We have sought a way to honor and remember their legacy of love and gardening. Naming this garden after them felt very fitting.
