Global Gardens

Skip down the street from the Asbury-Union Learning Center and you are at the "Garden House and Gardens." The Garden House along with the Gardens is an after-school program in partnership with Union Public Schools and Global Gardens. Global Gardens is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering students and communities through hands-on science education. This project will help students create a garden with a goal of helping them learn about science, health and the environment as well as challenge them to become caring, forward thinking and confident individuals. The Union 6thand 7th Grade Center sends 20 students on Tuesdays and Thursdays to this program. The Garden House is a place of peace for students to let go of the bad things that happened during the day and to acknowledge the good. Students are also able to take music lessons, hang out at the peace table or work in the gardens. During the 9/11 volunteer effort, 40 raised planting beds were made to help the students with fall planting. 

Asbury Corner consists of 12 acres owned by Asbury UMC. The property has changed a lot over the years and will continue to change as we move forward.  Please refer to the illustration to see the properties and the year they were purchased.  Do you remember when the property was just a dirt road?  Now look what God is doing and will accomplish at Asbury Corner.
