Community Garden July Blog

The summer heat and humidity are taking their toll but they haven’t affected the ongoing positive happenings in our garden! Here are some of them:

#1 is the dedication of donations Bed 15, as a tribute to our beloved Fran Johnson by Carol Peterson. Fran was an original member of the garden when it was formed in 2012. Church members still talk about the beautiful tomatoes that he used to share with them.

#2 the annual potluck is on the calendar for Saturday, August 21, 2021 from 11:30 – 1:30! How exciting that our tradition is returning this year!

If you have a suggestion for a speaker or a topic, or both, please let Nathan or Jill know ASAP. In the meantime, we’ve contacted Urban Harvest for a possible speaker.

#3 thanks to Liam for the use of Bed#6 for donations this year!

#4 during the month of June, the following donations were made to the Clear Lake Baptist Food Pantry:

23 lbs. tomatoes; 2.8 lbs. peppers; 8 oz. carrots; 3.8 lbs. eggplant; and 2 lb.10oz. cucumbers.

Donation days: Wed. 2:30 – 4:30, the earlier the better. Jane and David Malin live close by and are willing to deliver your donations: 281-488-2452

Please report your donations to Jill: or leave a text at
832-755-6758. Thank you!
