No one should go hungry. Beyond, feeding and meeting the needs of the poor, Fairview Community Church believes that we have a responsibility to provide a space for all to nourish our bodies and souls. This is achieved through the Justice Ministry in many ways.
THE COMMUNITY GARDEN
The FCC Community Garden is a place where we grow organic, fresh vegetables to share with both our FCC Community and the Someone Cares Soup Kitchen in Costa Mesa.
Garden work days happen periodically. When a work day is scheduled look for the information on the FCC calendar. They are often on weekday mornings but we also schedule some on Saturdays. Weeding in the garden can take place at any time. Pam will gladly meet you at the garden and put you to work!
NEW PLOT SPACES ARE AVAILABLE AT A NOMINAL DONATION!
