The Kenilworth Giving Garden . . . Garden volunteers harvested 53 lbs. of fresh produce for Loving Food Resource during June. Thanks to Asheville GreenWorks for donating funds to purchase a rain barrel to help water the garden at KPC. This is a truly unique "farm to table" urban garden!
Oak Tree Down: During the Sunday service on May 5, one of our old oak trees gracing the front lawn of KPC came down right into the street. It damaged 4 cars and sent the neighbor- hood into darkness. The city and the church sprang into action and the mess was cleared up. The stump was ground, mulched, and flowers were put in to return the front lawn to a place of beauty.
Wednesday Night Live was held Wednesday, June 12 in the garden! The topic of discussion was on Jesus and Ecology.
New tables and chairs delivered to the Fellowship Hall on June 11. KPC and LOS UCC teamed up to purchase and to replace the aged chairs and tables in the Fellowship Hall. Many thanks to Don Peterson, KPC, and Sara from the UCC for coordinating this effort.
