Garden Ministry

The garden volunteers work in the front gardens from February through November, planting, weeding, composting and making our campus beautiful. Prior gardening experience is not required, only enthusiasm! Bring a water bottle and gloves if you have them.

Greenbelt Group

The Greenbelt Group helps maintain and restore the greenbelt slope to the south and west of the cathedral by removing invasive plants, maintaining the trails, and replanting with native vegetation. Bi-monthly work parties meet at the trailhead on the south side of the parking lot at the Greenbelt sign.

Kitchen Garden

The Saint Mark's kitchen garden on the west side of building is new, evolving and welcomes all (including children). We grow fruits and vegetables to support the Noel House Shelter at Saint Mark’s. CONTACT: Brian Sellers-Petersen, Claire West or Carolyn White

 

Honey Bees

Saint Mark’s houses honey bees on the rooftop of the Cathedral House, busily buzzing about, pollinating and making honey. Leaders Brian Sellers Petersen and Cait Platz have obtained apprentice certification from the Washington State Master Beekeepers Association, and are ready to educate any interested community members who wish to participate!
