Children’s Gardens

Sowing seeds of hope and faith

Children’s Gardens 2021

In the heart of Lancaster city, children at Saint James Episcopal Church grow vegetables in small garden plots located on the northeast corner of our campus. The project began a few years ago and continues to expand. The children engage in each step of the process. Small hands eagerly prepare the ground, sow the seeds and plants, pray for God’s blessing, water, weed and harvest.

Families have found tending to the garden during the summer and autumn months to be an enriching and meaningful experience. We have CYF sign ups for garden stewardship and maintenance.
