seeking garden mentor/mentors to assist them in the development of their new
Eden Garden that will serve Mt. Zion All Nation's Bible Church and Dewitt
food pantries.  25 church members and various youth have already signed on

affected by this garden.  They plan to extend this garden space in the next
few years to include a pavilion and a children's play area.

teaching a Gardening 101 class to church members.  They are also looking for
someone who can provide hands-on help in the garden and be available for
horticultural and garden design and planting advice.  They are also seeking
material and/or resources showing basic gardening step by step instructions,
explaining the abc's.
