Genesis Gardens is a community development program of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, utilizing sustainable agriculture to support, equip and empower our brothers and sisters in need. Genesis Gardens is ramping up their volunteer projects in an effort to surround and support what will become the Community First! Village – a 27 acre neighborhood with a farm in the center that will eventually house 200-250 people, 80% of whom will have been formerly chronically homeless. And we want Mosaic to be a big part of their efforts.
There are ongoing volunteer opportunities and needs that individuals can always help with, but we want to work together on this important work too. So we have set aside the 1st Saturday morning of every month as a group work day at Genesis Gardens. Our own Heidi Sloan works with Genesis Gardens, and will serve as our point person for our ongoing work there.
Finally, here’s a great video introducing Genesis Gardens and their work.
