The gardening program in East Fork, Arizona uses Jesus’ parables to inspire and educate children and families about gardening and the gospel. Health concerns on the reservations are addressed by combining basic gardening skill lessons with games, meals, and bible studies in a peaceful, productive environment. Together with Kingdom Workers volunteers, they pray for rain, blessings on the harvest, and peace for families. The benefits of this program extend beyond just feeding and nourishing the body to feeding and nourishing the soul.
