Gardening Team

Vision of this team: 

This team focuses on the gardens and green space located on CRD campus.  Our goal is to utilize the space in a manner that best serves the community and those who live and visit here.  The vision is to provide God inspired green areas where the community is able to gather and either have a safe area of reflection or help grow food to share.  Where one can find respite, enjoyment, learn, relax, and even work toward fulfilling their goals.  

 

Focus Areas:

Reflection Garden, Community Garden, any other green space on campus.
