Church Garden Tip: Weigh every harvest!
A key metric for every church garden is how many pounds of produce was grown? With this information, you can measure your garden’s impact, plan more effectively & attract financial resources. Every church garden should get a food scale (member churches could use their seed money to purchase one), weigh every harvest & write the results in a notebook that’s kept at the church or in a cloud-based format like Google docs so that everyone can have access to the sheet. Share the totals at church meetings, conferences, and/or in congregational publications (like the bulletin or annual booklet) so everyone can celebrate and praise the Lord of the harvest!
