Mt. Vernon Community Garden is a mission of Zwingli United Church of Christ of Mt Vernon.  We are members, neighbors and friends of Zwingli United Church of Christ of Mt. Vernon coming together in community, to create a beautiful, outdoor space: 
A Growing Place                         
A Gathering Place                  A Healing Place 
We envision this space to be:

  • A place in which, together, friends and neighbors, care for the earth, use sustainable gardening techniques, and create access to healthy food.  A place in which wild birds, insects, and other creatures flourish and are seen as vital parts of our community.
  • A peaceful and happy place in which we can build community with each other through gathering and playing together outside.  
  • A place in which we practice radical hospitality and respect in which people feel valued and safe.  A place of restoration.
