Also the home of the Columbia Refugee Garden, where many resilient folks from all over the world tend thriving gardens. Check out the lovely pictures on their blog!
This garden is provided by the church, but is open to anyone regardless of religious affiliation. The congregation began the garden in 2007 and have since then doubled plot sizes, expanded the garden quite a bit, added a shed and other improvements. The Heart of Missouri Master Gardeners also maintain a demo garden at this site.
