Love & Fishes Bountiful Garden


The ‘Love & Fishes Bountiful Garden’ is a sacred space where folks come together for a common purpose — to make fresh, organic produce available to our community and those visiting Haywood Street who have limited access to fresh produce.

Barriers that commonly divide people from different  backgrounds or with different  life circumstances  disappear when they work side by side in the garden.  Strangers quickly become friends.  It is in these unlikely friendships that we catch glimpses of God’s kingdom!

Guiding Values for Haywood Street’s Garden Ministry

  • The Garden will be a welcoming entry point for individuals and groups wishing to get involved at Haywood St.
  • Relationships matter more than efficiency or production.
  • The gifts, knowledge and experience that each person brings to their work in the garden will be valued.
  • We will prioritize using organic and sustainable methods that honor the land, the dirt and the harvest as good gifts from God to be loved and cared for — but not at the expense of any of the above named values.

    Great to see a community garden at the Haywood St Church. We are going to be moving to Asheville soon and hope to get involved. We will be in Asheville the second week in October and will drop by and hopefully worship with you on October 8. Love, Del K
