Join World Relief in helping build the refugee community garden, our newest refugee and immigrant empowerment space! Be sure to wear closed-toed shoes and clothing that can get dirty. Some activities will be labor intensive and will require lifting.
- 9:00 am: Meet at the Hillside Church (930 E James St, Kent, WA 98031) for a thirty-minute orientation on the vision of the community garden and specific instructions and goals for the day.
- 9:30 am: Begin work.
- 12:00 pm: Conclude work.
We are converting an acre of paved parking lot space and transforming it into the Paradise Parking Plots community garden with 50 plots, where refugees, immigrants, and local community members can gather to grow culturally appropriate foods that promote a healthier lifestyle, improve food access, foster economic independence, and build community. Further, this garden will provide a much-needed space for interactive nutrition and health education of youth and adults in the Kent community.
