Fred Bitting and Julie Tuminnia Tomsuden plant the New Exodus Raised Bed Garden with the children in Fair Haven. Circling around the garden, visitors read the stories of the great saving work of God from the Hebrew Bible, and see, smell, even taste the plants that play roles in those amazing events. Other gardens include a Walk through the Bible Garden, a Garden to raise vegetables for Fair Haven Concerned, a water garden, a butterfly garden, and other plants of the Bible gardens. The gardens are resting in the winter, but come May, God willing, the gardens will come back to life! To arrange a visit and enjoy our slideshow presentation, contact the Rev. Marsh Hudson-Knapp.
