“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. In 2018, the garden transitioned to a church-organized ministry with the hopes of involving more neighbors in the gardening process as well as continuing to share the produce with the community as well as CPC members and neighbors.
