Denise Rhodes Memorial Greenhouse Project
In memory of Denise Rhodes an avid gardener and champion for Jesus Christ, Covenant Village Retreat has established an above ground Greenhouse project including an herb and spice garden. Youth from throughout the region will have the opportunity to learn “hands-on” gardening, agriculture, life-skills, and godly principles at Covenant Village.
Additionally the Greenhouse will be used to provide career training for youth who are interested in a career in traditional, hydroponic, and urban agriculture. The skills learned through this program will enable students to return to their communities to start or expand urban gardening and agriculture efforts which will improve their communities by providing fresh food, better nutrition, and long-term employment opportunities.
The cost for the 30’ x 48’ memorial greenhouse (including site preparation and start-up costs) is $38,000 and will include a dedication plaque naming the Greenhouse in Denise’s honor. The greenhouse is manufactured by Rimol Greenhouses and will include a heating system, which will enable it to operate year-round.
As with any kingdom advance, we rely heavily on the support of our partners, to pray and to invest in the work at Covenant Village! Would you prayerfully consider making a financial gift towards our stated funding goal? No matter what the amount, every financial effort is greatly appreciated.
The Greenhouse project is just one of many opportunities to support our ongoing development at Covenant Village Retreat. Click here to see others. And thank you, in advance, for your service to God!
