God's FFA

God’s FFA *** God’s Food For All


The plants are up, and last weekend was spent mulching the gardens. Watch our emails and bulletins for updates on help needed as the gardens progress.


We will be starting a new ministry this spring to help feed the hungry in Carroll. To accomplish this goal, we will rent garden space at the community gardens, plant, cultivate, water, and grow vegetables. We will then harvest, clean, and prepare them to deliver to New Opportunities food pantry. We will also mentor New Opportunity scholarship recipients through one full season of gardening with their own garden plot by providing rent, seed, and plants for them. We will always remain focused that God is the source of the soil, sunshine, heat, moisture, and the growing process that produces all this food.

Members of this ministry could choose any of the following ways to participate in this group:

Provide money for garden rent, seeds, plants, fertilizer, and insecticide.

Provide a helping hand to plant, weed, water, and nurture plants.

Provide a helping hand with infrastructure needs for the gardens by making cages for keeping deer and rabbits out, making tomato cages, building structures for vine plants to grow on, and other things that will come up as weather dictates.

Provide a helping hand harvesting, cleaning, and preparing to deliver vegetables to New Opportunities.

Provide a helping hand to clear gardens of all debris in the fall.

We invite all who would like to join us in this new ministry to contact Clay Winterboer by email: chw1@win-4-u.net or text him at 712-830-6251.
