The East End Missional Community currently participates in community organizing around two key concerns: housing affordability and food insecurity.
With our partners in the East End, we have created a garden collaborative that connects all the community gardens throughout the area. We are also establishing garden clubs at each local elementary, middle, and high school.
These community gardens not only produce fruits and vegetables that can supplement the diets of our neighbors, they also give students and neighbors places of pride in their community.
So far, we have had tremendous support from students, parents, teachers, and community members who want to start gardening or are expert gardeners. Come join us!
Rev. Paul Richards-Kuan invites members and friends in the St. Paul's community to come volunteer on Saturday, March 23, 9 am–1 pm, at Navarro Middle School (5100 Polk Houston, TX 77023). “This would be an excellent way get to know some East End neighbors, see some of the East End, and get your hands dirty in service to God,” he says.
For more details or to be added to a list of future community garden volunteering opportunities, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 713-528-0527.
