Sooke church fundraiser helps garden grow

Concert, tea and silent auction planned for June 17

Sooke Baptist Church is hosting a fundraising concert, tea and silent auction on June 17 to help support Grace Gardens.

Grace Gardens was established last year in an effort to offer, free of charge, vegetables to those in need.

Last year the gardens produced more than 1,000 pounds of vegetables.

This year, in addition to vegetables, the church is expanding its garden to include a fruit orchard and berry shrubs.

“The team at Grace Gardens is very thankful for all the physical help and support provided from so many kind, generous and caring folks who contributed to make this project a success,” said church officials in a written statement.

The concert and tea runs from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at Sooke Baptist Church, 7110 West Coast Rd.
