Gardening at Advent
Advent has several opportunities to be involved with gardening. During the growing season, color abounds and the grounds are spectacular. The entry is lined with beautiful shrubs and flowers. Large pots are planted and are at the entrances. There is a beautiful garden in the Courtyard area by a fountain, a smaller garden to the north of the Sanctuary. A large garden area is also available for immigrant gardeners.
