Building the beds

Church members recently built raised beds for the Good Shepherd Community Gardens.

Good Shepherd Episcopal Church will rent 12 raised garden beds this spring to Sun Prairie gardeners.

The Good Shepherd Community Garden will provide gardeners with the opportunity to learn basic gardening skills, how to preserve produce, grow healthy food choices and to be part of this unique ministry,

The beds are located at 3416 Swansee Ridge, near the corner of highways C and 19, right next to Good Shepherd Church.

Registration for the raised beds will take place on Saturday, April 28 from 12-2 p.m. at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church.

Raised bed rental/assignments will be first-come, first-serve. There are 4’ x 8’ beds and 6’ x 12’ beds. A nominal fee of $15 and $20 respectively will be charged to rent a raised bed for the entire growing season. Opening Day/Planting Season is scheduled to begin on May 19

Good Shepherd looks forward to “growing together” and a bountiful growing season.
