Celebrating Nature's Bounty: October Garden Day with United In Service Coalition

Hello, United In Service Coalition family! As autumn paints the world in vibrant hues, we wanted to share with you the joyous and educational experience of our recent October Garden Day. This event was not just about harvesting; it was a day filled with learning, planting, and connecting with nature.



Educational Insights and Planting New Life To began the day, we focused on preparing for the future. Our team cleaned out several garden boxes, making room for new life. We planted an array of transplants including broccoli, bok choy, collard greens, and more kale. This activity was not just about planting but also about educating our members on sustainable gardening practices and the importance of growing diverse crops.


Harvesting Nature's Goodness Our day continued with the delightful opportunity of harvesting. We gathered okra, green beans, basil, and kale — each with their unique flavors and health benefits. It was heartwarming to see the fruits of our labor, quite literally, in the palms of our hands. The experience was made even more enriching as our group learned about each plant's properties, uses, and cultivation methods.



One of the highlights for the kids was witnessing the sweet potatoes in their near-harvest stage. Observing the growth process from start to finish was a valuable learning experience for them, offering a glimpse into the wonders of plant life.


Moreover, in our commitment to fostering environmental stewardship, each child took home an oak tree. Planting these trees is more than just an activity; it's about providing homes for wildlife and contributing to a greener future.



An Invitation to Extend the Green Canopy We're excited to share that we still have more oak trees available! If any of our members are interested in planting their own oak tree, please feel free to reach out to T. Let's work together to make our community and the world a greener, more sustainable place.

Supplies are limited.


Our October Garden Day was a beautiful blend of harvesting, learning, and planting. Events like these remind us of the importance of connecting with the earth and each other. We are grateful for the enthusiasm and participation of all who joined, and we look forward to more such days where we can learn, grow, and serve together.


Stay tuned for more updates on our next Garden Day! Join in the fun and remember, every small step we take towards nurturing nature is a leap towards a better world!
