The Epiphany Community Garden in Collierville is looking for volunteers to help tend to the annual spring. 

They need all the volunteer workers they can get, and high school or middle age students can earn service points by doing work.

Boy Scouts can also earn certain merit badges.

The garden is located at the corner of Bray Station and Wolf River. 

The Epiphany Community Garden has produced thousands of pounds of vegetables since the five acre property was developed into the garden it is today.

Owned by the Epiphany Lutheran Church, the vegetable garden was started by the church more than five years ago and donates 100 percent of its produce to the Collierville Food Pantry, St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen, and even donates floral bouquets to the Page Robbins Adult Day Center. For more information, call 901.861.6227.
