We have been extremely blessed on Stoddart Avenue with donations, volunteers good wishes and good weather. However, on Saturday, we were extra blessed when Pastor Tim Iseringhausen from Christ Lutheran Church in Bexley presided over a brief blessing ceremony at the Stoddart Avenue Community Garden. The Lutheran “green book” even has a dedication service for gardens, including a reading from the Book of Deuteronomy. Half of the gardeners attended and enjoyed some light refreshments after the ceremony.
Happily, the Girl Scouts had also provided three scarecrows for the Garden and Dwain immediately planted them in their new homes following the ceremony.
