The Thrivent Action Team program is part of Thrivent's Living Generously outreach initiative that empowers their members to make an impact in their community through financial giving. Action Teams receive a $250 Community Impact Card to use as seed money to purchase project supplies and create promotional materials.
|Great weather and a great turnout (over 20 people) for opening day of the garden season.|
Our Action Team focused on raising awareness about the important role our community garden serves:
The Ryan Street Community Garden provides Hancock residents the opportunity to grow healthy, affordable, fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs for their households. It also serves as a place for social interaction and creates a beautiful and educational landmark in the community demonstrating ecologically-sound and climate appropriate practices.The main event activity was building a community composting system for the garden. A big thank you to Rick Loduha for helping with the design and construction.
