Creation Care

Asbury Seminary encourages students, faculty and staff to participate in lifestyles that care for God’s creation. Together we are reclaiming God’s call and learning how to better steward God’s gift through the community garden.

How do I become a part of this community?


Community Garden

The Community Garden/Eco-Seminary is a fast-growing component of Asbury’s creation care plan. Students and their families, staff, faculty, and Wilmore community members grow fresh, organic food and have opportunities for relationship, recreation, education, and formation. 

Dr. Tennent says, “The community garden is the perfect complement to the academic work of Asbury Seminary. We have envisioned it as a living laboratory for creation care and community building, and we look forward to the lessons it grows.”

Get Involved

There are many ways to be involved in the garden, from pulling a few weeds while on your nightly stroll to lending your artistic talents to make signs to planting your favorite native foods for the community to share. Please contact Emmanuel Jatau at extension 2378 if you have questions, or better yet, email him at You may also stop into the office of Community Formation and share your ideas. We exist for the community and encourage you to find a way you can be involved in providing food, fun, and fellowship. We especially welcome ideas and projects that evolve the sustainability of our community garden – water catchment, erosion mitigation, composting, recycling, etc.
