Central Reform Congregation


In late October, volunteers planted 10 fruit trees (five apple, five pear) at Central Reform Congregation as part of Gateway Greening’s ‘The Giving Grove’ program. CRC was asked to take part in the pilot program of ‘The Giving Grove,’ which aims to plant sustainable community orchards in St. Louis. The congregation has a garden for the past two years, and has supplied more than 500 pounds of produce to a neighborhood food pantry.  The volunteers planting trees included a group from St. Louis University and from First Unitarian Church.
