Parable: Mason Kaiser and the Garden Beds

Building Garden BoxesMy name is Mason Kaiser, I am 15 years old and a lifelong member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. I am a Boy Scout in Troop 215. A couple weeks ago, you may have seen that one of the islands is no longer filled with junipers but instead, has two new planter boxes on it. For the past few months I have been working with Pastor Tim to plan the construction of these garden beds for the church. On April 8, we completed the construction of the garden beds.

These garden beds have multiple purposes. They will be used to grow fresh food which can be shared with the congregation. One of the gardens will be used by the preschool to give them hands-on learning experience.

I would like to thank Pastor Tim, the GSLC staff and the congregation for their support of the project.


Thank you, Mason, for taking on this project! At the Spring Work Day yesterday, vegetables were planted in the gardening beds. We are looking forward to watching them grow.
