Houghs Neck Congregational Church Sunday School has a vegetable garden, sponsored by Katie’s Krops. Katie’s Krops is a nonprofit organization focused on empowering young growers to plant vegetables gardens and donate the harvest to organizations in their communities that help people in need. Last year, the Sunday school took over the planting and maintaining of the garden behind the Houghs Neck Congregational Church that was started by Troop 6 Eagle Scout, Alex Samsel. One of our Sunday school teachers, wanted our children to have a community service project that they could really participate in and see the rewards of giving back to their community. In 2015, our Sunday school students took over the vegetable garden, each year having one of the students act at as the “Master gardener”. In its first year, The Sunday School students harvested and donated over 300 pounds of fresh vegetables to Interfaith Social Services in Quincy and have continued to increase its efforts each year. The garden has truly helped our Sunday school appreciate what a huge difference a little effort can make to the folks in your community! We encourage everyone to come down and check out our garden, and if you would like more information about starting your own garden or where to donate your extra veggies, please let us know!
