Ginger's Garden

Little Fork has for years supported the Culpeper Food Closet with cash and canned goods, but never fresh produce. Then one Spring a tragic accident took the life of one of our church family, an avid gardener and staunch supporter of the Food Closet.  To honor her and to improve nutrition for the needy in Culpeper, the men’s group started a vegetable garden on good land adjoining the church. Ginger’s Garden sprang to life in late Spring thanks to the hard work of many of the congregation. Despite intense competition from ground hogs and deer, who decimated the greens, and monsoon-like rains that did wonders for the weeds, we managed to harvest scores of squash, cucumbers and tomatoes and delivered them to St. Stephen’s Food Closet.
