)-- Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church, 4008 East Cayuga Street, Tampa - A year ago the Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church was planning for a Garden Ground Breaking Celebration to plant seeds for those in need.
The church has been preparing for months for this day.
Pastor, Reverend Michael V, White had a vision for the Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church's vacant lot at 4011 East Curtis Ave., for the church to have a community garden to produce vegetables to feed the hungry, on May 16, 2015 the Garden was dedicated to God, after which about 75 adults and children went to work planting rows of beans, squash and cucumbers.
Pastor White’s vision is now a reality. The once vacant property with weeds was replaced with seeds to grow vegetables with the hard work of church members volunteering as well as our Pastor who served as Group Leader.
Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church is excited to give to the community, they also will be distributing clothes to the needy at this event. The garden is part of the church’s new mission of health and wellness of body, mind and soul, their plans are for the church, to use the produce to help with meals we are planning to serve once a month to the hungry. “We are serving a community of so many needs, through this, people will have a meal,” said Pastor White.
The church is so grateful to reach out to the community, the garden has grown beyond its humble beginnings.
