Crops for PROP
The "Crops For PROP" Community Garden
Lois Hyde, a member of our church family, had a vision and a passion that were connected and produced a great harvest of spiritual fruit. At a leadership meeting in late 2012, she observed:
- Our involvement in PROP, our local food shelf, revealed a real and present need in our community for a wider variety of food, especially fresh vegetables
- One of the assets of our congregation is land. We have a lot of it, almost nine acres.
and every pound of it was given to someone!
Listening and identifying a need, seeing something we had to offer, and looking outside the box of what we usually do has made us Big Enough to Make a Difference in our world. In time, our garden may grow into our signature ministry, something that everyone in Eden Prairie and the surrounding area identifies with EPUMC.
