Work for the Restoration Community Garden began in 2012.
What we have aimed to do is to bring life back to a piece of land that had been abandoned for several years, collecting all sorts of waste.
We at the Oak Harbor Church of Christ believe this project is representative to what God is doing in all of creation. God, through the power of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit is redeeming all of his creation, especially the parts that have been abandoned and trashed. Whether we’re talking about a piece of land, individual lives, or relationships, God, and only God, has the power to restore all that is broken. As the Apostle John wrote, “ Behold, I make all things new.”
As followers of Jesus, we believe and strive to participate-in what our Lord prayed in his prayer, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.” We believe heaven is a reality that we anticipate and look forward to, but also recognize that Heaven is a reality that the Body of Christ, can participate in now, today; and part of that participation is assisting in restoring that which is broken on this earth.
The Restoration Community Garden is to benefit all in the city of Oak Harbor. All produce that comes from the garden is free to anyone wanting something to eat.
If you are willing or wanting to help with the project, we welcome anyone who desires to make this garden an even better place.
It is our prayer that this Garden would bless all for the glory of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
