DALLAS—Texas Baptists’ River Ministry is asking churches, groups and individuals to donate seeds for community gardens along the Rio Grande.

River Ministry coordinators will distribute donated vegetable seeds to churches along the Texas/Mexico border in time for spring planting. Churches use the garden ministry to develop relationships that create opportunities for them to share the gospel in their communities.

A $25 donation of seeds can provide enough for one community garden.

Specific seeds requested are tomato, jalapeno, watermelon, lettuce, squash, carrot, pinto beans, cantaloupe, green beans, cilantro, spinach, bell pepper, chili pepper, corn, cucumber, garlic, okra, cabbage and onion.

Seed packets should have a 2016 or later expiration date and should be mailed by March 15 to the Baptist General Convention of Texas, Attn. River Ministry, 7557 Rambler Road, Suite 1200, Dallas TX 75231-2388.
