“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink…” Matthew 25: 35
Meredith Hallett, a Cadette Girl Scout from Troop 878 in Waxahachie and CPC youth member, spent several months in 2016 creating a community garden with the help of a team of volunteers she mobilized. She received assistance in picking the location and the best seasonal fruits and vegetables from Master Gardener Arlene Hamilton.
After coming up with the plan for her Silver Award project, Meredith took her proposal to the Session, the ruling board of CPC, who granted approval and offered support. The garden is located on CPC property along North Flat Street, near Bethlehem Revisited. The produce is available to the community, food banks, and CPC members and neighbors. The hope is that through the involvement of others beyond the Girl Scout project, the garden will flourish and feed the hungry among us for years to come.
