Donation from the Twin Ponds garden

By The Rev. David Marshall, Rector of St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church


On Monday morning I was working alone in the office at St. Dunstan’s Church when Shellie Anderson and her friend Alice, from the Twin Ponds Community Garden, pulled up in front of the church with a pickup truck full of beautiful produce.

Normally, they deliver fresh produce to a food bank but this week the food bank was closed, the produce was going to wilt, so they came to the church to see if we could use their harvest.

They brought lettuce, kale, sweet peppers, squash, plums, eggplants, beautiful tomatoes, tomatillos, fresh herbs, and fresh basil.

These beautiful vegetables all went into the meal we prepared at St. Dunstan’s church Tuesday afternoon.

Like most weeks, we fed almost 500 people: 120 at the church and more than three hundred meals delivered to 4 or 5 different homeless encampments.

We at St. Dunstan’s Community Dinner program are grateful to the wonderful people at Twin Ponds Community Garden for their generosity.

On Tuesday afternoon, when I went into the kitchen, there were Shellie and Alice helping with the cooking. They even went along to deliver the meals to two of the camps.

Thank you again to Shellie, Alice, and all the organic gardeners at Twin Ponds Community Garden.
