Notes from the Garden
Throop Memorial Church
300 S. Los Robles Ave., Pasadena
Spring rains encouraged a riot of wildflowers. We revel in the beauty and bounty of the garden.
We planted blueberries with the “Kids Dig In’” children’s program at Throop. The shrubs were planted in large containers in late March. Already they have nearly doubled in size and are covered with tiny blueberries.
The “Kids Dig In” children’s program takes root month by month. We meet the second Sunday of every month at 11:00am to practice awareness, meditation, garden skills, how to nurture food crops and habitats, and just enjoy the beauty around us. The program is designed for 5-10 year olds. Younger children are welcome with an attending parent.
This month we will also host children’s events on Sunday 4/17, as Throop celebrates Earth Day. Meet at Throop at 11:00am, after the garden work party.
Hope for Earth Tree
Hang your hopes for bringing peace and healing to Creation on the Throop Olive Tree between April 11-17.
