Even in the City, a Garden Can Grow

Cultivate is a Community Development Cooperation that is committed to working toward the restoration of community and economically self-sufficient individuals in Milo-Grogan through the gospel of Jesus Christ. By His grace we have smoothly entered into the neighborhood (some folks physically moving there) and teamed up with the Milo Commission and Civic Association to support neighborhood led efforts.

In one year Cultivate has gone from an idea to a formed non-profit, establishing a board and hiring an executive director. Volunteers are currently assisting with resident-developed initiatives such as the Ready to Grow Green Space and a neighborhood newsletter. Cultivate is one of Veritas’s many agents of action to live out the call to love our neighbors. As a church we must allow God to penetrate our hearts with the richness of an underserved neighborhood. The call to love our neighbors and serve the undermined is of course to gift God’s people with means of progress and to demonstrate the gospel, but it is also to expose the poverty that lives in us. We are united with our neighbors in our desperate need of Jesus Christ.
