Thanks to First Mennonite of Newton, Kansas!

This past weekend we were visited by a group of Mennonites in town on a service learning trip from First Mennonite Church in Newton, Kansas.

They spent Saturday morning building us a new compost bin at Hannah’s Garden– much better than our rickety contraption made of fence wire we were using before!

If you are committed to not using harmful chemicals in the growing of healthy, nutritious food, you had better have a large compost production plan. Thanks to the folks from First Mennonite, now our work will be a little easier.

If you want to talk to somebody about your group volunteering at Jackson City Farm, email our director, Hugh at and we can make it happen.
