A new community garden has sprouted up in Mesa, where Eagle Scout Nathan Diemers spearheaded the building and installation of 22 raised beds on the grounds of Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 2745 N. 32nd St.
The Harvest of Hope Community Garden will be “a place for education, nurturing, and a growth of spirit through God’s bounty,” according to a news release. A portion of all food harvested will be given to a local food pantry.
“We want to promote, create and maintain community and home gardening in Mesa, and to encourage community involvement, and betterment in the community, while providing members with the joys of gardening,” the release said.
