Guns 2 Gardens

Saturday, September 17, 2022

11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

First and Franklin Presbyterian Church

210 West Madison Street

Bring your unloaded firearm(s) in the trunk of your vehicle where a Guns to Gardens team
member and police officer will remove the gun for dismantling.  All raw material will be forged
 into garden tools. Gift cards in exchange will be offered as long as available.
Guns 2 Gardens is a National safe Surrender Network inspired by the work of Raw Tools
(raw tools.org).  Its vision is to create a network of congregations across the country that have
an ongoing ministry of disarming unwanted guns.  The metal scraps will be forged into garden
tools and then donated to Baltimore City community gardens which mentor to the city's youth.
This ministry embodies Isaiah's vision where "...they will beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks.  Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they
train for war anymore."  -- Isaiah 2:4
Donations for gift cards and to help cover expenses are most welcomed.
Online donations can be made here and donations by check can be mailed to the Church Office with "Guns2Gardens" in the memo line.
