Union Presbyterian Church

Monroe, Wisconsin

Union Presbyterian Church of Monroe, Wisconsin, discerned that one of the gifts that our congregation had to share with our community was abundant green space, located in a residential neighborhood adjacent to a public park. When our session heard that there was no longer a community garden, we responded. We plowed and tilled two good-sized neighborhood gardens, planted by two families in the community and one single woman. Our Confirmation Class built a Little Free Library, placed it next to our front sidewalk and invited neighbors to take a book on their way to the park.
