Sharecropper Project Update June 2020

Categories: Events,Our Programs,Sharecropper

Bethesda’s Sharecropper project of winter wheat is growing well. It is quite amazing how winter wheat is planted in September, grows slowly and then goes dormant for the winter. As soon as the frost is out of the ground and the soil begins to warm, the spring growth begins. It becomes the first grain crop to be harvested often in late July. We hope for a good crop and a good price as the needs of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank to help those in need around the world is particularly urgent this year of the pandemic.

Donations are appreciated throughout the year. They can be mailed to the church or dropped off in the church mailbox.

Drive by the southwest corner of Warden Ave. and the Stouffville Road to watch it grow and mature. Our sign is on the Stouffville Road, just west of Warden.
