A Touching Story

Hey Sarah and unity members,

I wanted to share a story with you about the Keller Park Garden. This past Sunday we had a neighborhood block party. During the party a man was picking some lettuce. Ryan (the church pastor) walked down introduced himself and invited him for dinner at the block party. The man asked if it was ok to pick and Ryan overwhelming said yes, please pick whatever is ready. He then asked Ryan if he could share a story. Last summer he lost his job. He has a wife and 2 kids and they rent a home just by the garden. For about 3 months they were broke and had no idea where they were going to get food. He and the kids were out walking one day and came upon the garden. From that day on they ate pretty much only from the garden. I never once saw him or ran by him but he came every day and picked so that his family could eat and they would have money to pay bills. I always wonder if people pick or if they use the garden but after this story i am sure they do, and that it brings good things.
