Volunteers at work building the foundation for a shed at Salem Church last weekend.

Salem Lutheran Church congregation member Andrew Hokenson reports that the church is making progress on its community garden at 9906 232nd St. S.W. in Edmonds. Groundbreaking for the garden, near the corner of 100th Avenue West and Edmonds Way, was last weekend and the church will continue to work this weekend, Hokenson added.

“We have started receiving registration forms from prospective gardeners and they should be able to garden by Sunday,” he added.

According to a church announcement about the garden, the goal is to “help cultivate an appreciation for sustainable organic gardening, promote activities for a healthy lifestyle, provide opportunities for people to grow their own vegetables, and also dedicate a portion of what they grow to local food banks.”
