The Garden Church is re-imagining church as an interconnected organism; worshiping, loving and serving together as we transform a plot of land into a vibrant urban farm and sanctuary.
We first opened the gates to our once empty lot in the heart of Downtown San Pedro on May 1st 2016 and since then we have seen much transformation unfold. People from all walks of life have gathered together on this plot of land to create a thriving edible garden, urban sanctuary and community space where all are welcome.
We are a church that wholeheartedly believes that all people have something to give and something that they are hungry for. With that philosophy in mind, our gatherings and programs are designed to be an outlet for all people to feed and be fed in body, mind, and spirit.
Each week we are delighted to open our gates every Sunday from 3 pm – 6 pm as we Work, Worship, and Eat Together, and for our twice weekly Open Garden times Tuesday from 10 am – 1 pm, and Friday from 10 am – 2 pm. We have programs and volunteer opportunities for all ages and interests, including gardening, arts, music, spiritual practice, and more. We also open the garden during the monthly First Thursday Art Walk on Downtown San Pedro, offering a beautiful place to enjoy live music from 6 pm – 9pm.
We’re delighted to be working with our fantastic collaborators at Green Girl Farms, who bring their gardening expertise and inspired dedication to bringing organic edibles and education to our community.
We are proud to be a volunteer powered organization and we are profoundly grateful to all of the dedicated individuals that have helped us to transform this once empty lot into the vibrant urban farm and sanctuary that it has become. We would not be here without you, and we look forward to sharing together as this church continues to grow as a living sanctuary where God’s love is made visible as people feed and are fed in body, mind, and spirit.
