Farewell to Emmanuel
Promise of Peace Gardens launched its food pantry garden at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church in the spring of 2016. Many volunteers and comunity members came together to install and sustain this magical garden. The garden produced enough food to share with hundreds of people living in a food dessert. It was a very humbling experience to serve where community members slept on cardboard in the garden. And it was amazing who each and every homeless person that we spoke with understood the importance of a garden. They seemed to know that it could make the difference that we all need.
