A mess ‘o greens offered at Freeport United Methodist
The generous folks at Freeport United Methodist Church have planted a community garden that gives back.
Rev. Wesley Syfrett along with volunteers Ed Yerbey, Butch Shaffer, Greg Yancy and Brian Babbs decided in 2011 to do something that gives back to the community. A field was plowed, a sprinkler system put in and rows of greens such as collards, mustard, spinach along with radishes were planted.
“It’s open to the public and the garden offers a mess ‘o greens,” church secretary Jo Yancy said.
The group plans a seasonal spring garden as well.
Freeport United Methodist Church is located at the corner of CR83A and 185 Harrison Street, Freeport. Sunday service is at 10 a.m.
