We love the idea of community gardening! A few months ago, Hoss had the opportunity to donate one of our Wheel Hoes to the Community of Jesus – an ecumenical Christian community made up of monastic Brothers & Sisters, along with married couples, families and single adults located in Orleans, Massachusetts. This community of 230 members, strong in their commitment to their faith and way of life, are also master gardeners!
Brother Andrew Smith is, as we have come to know, the chief gardener of the community gardening. He oversees three main gardens plus two potato patches – in all, the Community has about 2/3 of an acre under cultivation. We felt the members of this Community would greatly benefit from one of our Wheel Hoes – not only to take the strain out of gardening but to help the members really enjoy planting and harvesting their vegetables and fruits and get the most out of their crops.
At Hoss Tools, we are huge fans of sustainable gardening, and the Community of Jesus does an incredible job. Oh, and we have to mention the fact that the Community also has cows, chickens and goats! A true working farm with both plants and animals – coming together to provide for community members.
