Hope Lutheran Church

2001 N Park Road, recently dedicated a new community garden.

The church's "Garden of Hope" is under the leadership of Deaconess Lyn Senkarik and member Patrick Griffin. Located at the rear of the congregation's Lutheran Ministry Center, the garden will not only be for members to enjoy, but will also be a part of the congregation's support of Plant City's United Food Bank. Produce from the garden also will be made available to the community at large through a "prayer and produce" day at Hope. Senkarik said, "With so many in our community being food insecure and going to bed hungry, any and everything we as a congregation can do to help those in need with this healthy alternative will go a long way in our community."
