One for the Crow Plant Space

Manchester UMC is proud to partner with and support One for the Crow Plant Space.  This is a volunteer run Community Garden in the Gravois Park Neighborhood, on the corner of Pennsylvania & Winnebago, in South City, St. Louis.  Positioned on two abandoned lots, our garden features a small orchard, fruit and veggie plots, and extensive herb garden, and more!

The garden provides weekly low-cost and free fruits and vegetables to Gravois Park residents who don’t have easy access to nutritious food. Produce from the garden is split between financially insecure young adults and garden neighbors. 

Do you like to garden? Enjoy spending time outdoors? Want to work on improving your green thumb?

The One For the Crow Plant Space in South St. Louis City could use your help!

Please complete the form below if you are interested in helping to prep and get the garden ready for the season.

Please wear work clothes, closed toed shoes, and bring any work gloves, weeding aids, shovels, and trowels you may have!

This event is multigenerational; however, children who are 18 years of age or older need to be accompanied by their parent/guardian. All participants must complete a Manchester UMC Consent and Release Form. To see if you have a valid Consent Form on file, please check the Manchester UMC Consent and Release Expiration List.

It’s important to complete this form below so that the ministry leader, Liz Shuburte, can contact you if this event is rescheduled due to inclement weather.
