Unity Center for Spiritual Growth Community Garden and Grounds
Unity Center for Spiritual Growth (formerly Unity of Greater Portland) was founded in 1937 to provide Unity teachings and resources to the greater Portland area and surrounding communities. Our mission statement is: “Unity Center for Spiritual Growth reaches in to reach out through education, service and creation of community.”Our current project entails an outreach and cooperation with outside groups that will allow us to serve the wider community in ways that align with Grassroots' vision. Unity will be partnering with Crossroads for Women, an addiction recovery center, to work with us in creating and maintaining a large organic garden from which we will all harvest. Unity's children's program will also be partnering with Maine Harvest for Hunger to learn organic gardening practices and to grow and contribute fresh produce to the Windham food pantry. Unity is blessed with a large number of elders who also wish to contribute to the work of the garden and reap its benefits. It is our hope with this single project to bring together our seniors, our children and the women in recovery to learn from one another, serve one another, and together enjoy the fruits of what we have accomplished.
