On the parking lot side of the church you will see three barrels with tomato plants. Project G.R.A.C.E. invited us to participate in this “community garden” to grow vegetables for the Scarborough Food Pantry. Project Grace supplied the barrels, soil, and plants… we supply the tending and the harvesting. If you are here at the church, please check to see if they need water.
