Surrounded by trees and just off the Capital Crescent Trail, St. Dunstan’s is perfectly situated for ministry to God’s Creation—people, nature, and the Earth. Plans are afoot to turn some of the church’s acreage into pollinator and rain gardens. In cooperation with local conservation and interfaith organizations, the church hopes to engage youth, veterans, and intellectually disabled adults in planting and nurturing beds of native flowers.
Colorful blooms and healthy soil will attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinators to add to the birds, salamanders, and chipmunks that already call the church yard home. St. Dunstan’s envisions becoming a center for environmental education, especially for children, and a place where friends and neighbors can visit throughout the week for meditation and solace outdoors.
