The gardens at Community Presbyterian Church were established in 2000 upon the dedication of the building.  Church members donated and planted perennials as the initial plantings in the garden plots.

In 2006, the Garden of Life, a garden for spiritual life beautifying and enhancing Community Presbyterian Church building and grounds, began to be planned.

In the fall of 2008 a pergola designed and built by church member Roy Pillers as an Eagle Scout project was added.  A new path and pergola floor was installed in the spring of 2009.

The church property was designated a National Wildlife Federation Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat in 2009 and certified as a Monarch Way Station in 2011.Signs in Garden of Life


The CPC gardens are maintained by church volunteers.  Call or email the office if you want to join in the fun!
