Garden committee members plant and maintain the parish gardens and grounds (other than the lawn). This is a great time for families to work together, and Boy Scouts and teens to earn service hours.
We have some garden tools, but it would be safer to bring your own garden tools, gloves, etc. General maintenance is on a weekly or monthly basis (whatever time can be donated).
Open to all interested individuals. Professional gardening knowledge and skills are appreciated but not necessary, weekend gardeners welcome!
More extensive work is done from 9 AM -12 Noon (unless noted otherwise) on selected Saturdays during the year.
Upcoming 2017 Garden Workdays:
- April 29th - 9am-12pm
- May 20th - 9am-12pm
- June 10th - 8am-11am
- July 22nd - 8am-11am
- August 19th - 8am-11am
Volunteers Needed for Summer Plant Watering
During the summer our beautiful flower pots and landscape plants need frequent watering, as much as three times a week! We need volunteers for a regular watering schedule, or for watering in an emergency when vacations or drought require extra helpers. If you can use a garden hose and can spare 30 minutes or more, please contact Christine Brawn, or 919-363-0731.
St. Andrew parishioner Mary Ellen Bischoff passed away on March 8, 2006. As a gift to generations to come, Mary Ellen directed the creation of the Mary Ellen and Robert A. Bischoff Garden Fund to maintain and enhance the gardens at St. Andrew Parish. Gifts to this fund will be used to maintain all the garden areas around our church. More info on the Giving Opportunities page.
