On Saturday, several members of St. Andrew's participated in a parking lot work party and gardening day as part of our local environmental mission. Volunteers worked hard to remove invasive plants (English ivy, blackberry, holly, clematis, etc.) from Restoration Creek on the edge of our parking lot. This allows the native plants, including Oregon grape, to thrive. Meanwhile, other volunteers trimmed the hedges and tended to the rose garden. We are so thankful to have volunteers who care for the nature surrounding our church on a regular basis.
