Even though COVID-19 has cancelled many activities, the garden is thriving. Our committed group of volunteers meets at the garden 2 times /week to
plant, harvest, weed and perform other chores. Because of COVID-19, we go in shifts, 4-5 people at a time. We wear masks and practice social distancing. All of our 24 beds have been planted and we have already harvested lettuce, chard, radishes, carrots, spinach, arugula, peas, green onions, kale, rhubarb and herbs. Soon the garden will be popping with several varieties of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, potatoes, beans, zucchini and other squashes. The produce is picked up by a driver from the West Warwick Senior & Community Center and delivered to seniors in their homes, as the center is closed. We feel certain that we will surpass last year's poundage of over 900 lbs. *** If any parishioner is in need of fresh vegetables, please contact the church office.*** (Pictured Donna Cimini, Paul Herchen, and the West Warwick Driver Dennis pictures taken by Virginia Parker)

First Harvest of the Season
Although the West Warwick Community Center is not open due to Covid 19, the town of West Warwick is delivering our produce to those in need in their community. Pictured are Virginia Parker, Donna Cimini, and Nancy Kimball handing produce to West Warwick’s driver.
