Nature that Nurtures

  • When you send your Spirit,
  • they are created,
  • and you renew
  • the face of the earth

An understanding of environmental stewardship propelled us on a righteous mission of transforming the Church grounds. Engaging local resources and community groups, we were successful in changing the landscaping, installing rain gardens, terraces, and infiltration beds to retain storm water, and planting native flowering plants and shrubs to attract pollinators and birds.

A true gem is the Nature that Nurtures brochure. The words of Mary Westervelt reveal how critical thinking applied to landscaping brings us closer to the natural flow and beauty of our environment.
