Buechel Park Community

Vegetable Garden Ministry

Buechel Park Baptist Church has three vegetable gardens.  Vegetables grown in these gardens are shared with several food pantries and neighboring churches, who provide community meals.  Additionally, fresh vegetables are delivered to our homebound and senior church members.   In the church garden location, space is allocated to nearby residents, allowing them to grow their own food. If you would like to help contribute to the garden ministry, please contact Suzanne Shepherd.
