Third Circle began as a way to support children, families and their community in making healthy lifestyle choices and provide them access to healthcare. LCUCC has acted as the fiduciary of the initial funds to begin this initiative.
Third Circle is in the process of receiving their non profit status.
The first project Third Circle began was a community garden. This year we will plant our third garden in the back yard of the church property. The children plant the crops and tend to the garden as part of their Sunday School time in the summer months. The produce produced is shared among the church families and the extra is taken and donated to the Leslie Outreach food bank.
We have partnered with the Ingham county food bank system. They provided us with child size gardening tools, gloves, support, and education on organic gardening.
