Adopt A Week in the Mosaic Garden

Our new fall garden is planted and off to a good start! We are looking for volunteers to adopt the garden for a week to water, weed, and check for pests. Groups and Sunday School classes are encouraged to join in this important effort since all the produce we grow is donated to Manna on Meridian food bank, and this is a fun way to help! Join the Green Team by emailing Jessie Perry at Perry386@msn.com.

T-shirt Donations & Bag Makers

Saint Paul’s Creation Care has teamed up with Sustainable Tallahassee to reduce plastic bag use and spread awareness about sustainable living by making t-shirt bags to hold the produce given out at Manna on Meridian. We need old t-shirts and bag makers so we can reach our goal of 100 a month. Please bring clean t-shirts of any size to the Sanders narthex in a bag labeled Creation Care. Even better, watch the how-to video on our Facebook page or come to our training October 7 and learn how to make these fun and handy bags yourself! Email Cara Fleischer at cares4creation@gmail.com for more details.

FREE Herbs

Need a few sprigs of rosemary, thyme, oregano, parsley, or basil? We are growing herbs in the garden and you are invited to take as much as you need. Mason jars and scissors are located in the brown storage cube for your use. Enjoy!

October Eco-Tip

Many cleaning products contain chemicals that are bad for your health and the environment. Clean safely and save money by making your own green cleaners. Follow this simple recipe for an all-purpose cleaner:

Mix 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup baking soda into 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water. Add 2 Tablespoons of natural liquid soap (such as Dr. Bronner’s orange scented) and 10 drops of preferred essential oil (citrus, lavender, pine, or tea-tree are popular choices.) Store in a spray bottle.
