A place to grow

Vegetables are planted atop straw bails in the community garden next to St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Brookings. The garden also sports a greenhouse for growing less hardy produce.

Vicar Bernie Lindley, and a small group of volunteers blessed the new greenhouse — part of the St. Timothy’s Gardenshare — behind St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Brookings on Saturday. 

“There is no reason anybody should go hungry,” said Scott Clapson, the man responsible for designing the garden. “This garden is for anyone who has a need for food, anyone in the community. We would like to have a few dedicated people out here tending the garden and see others feel free to come and pick what they need.” 

On St. Patrick’s Day 2013 Lindley took Clapson to the small, overgrown flag lot next to the church and told him that he would like to put a community garden there.
