First Parish in Lincoln Congregational Garden

First Parish in Lincoln Congregational Garden is a community effort to create a nurturing space for growing both nutritious food and connections to one another and the living earth. Evolving organically, the garden is being shaped by the lay of the land and the hands of those pitching in. It will become a place for giving and receiving in ways we can only imagine at this point. Everyone is welcome to join into this creation, conceived to bring forth growing spaces for individuals and the community.
