We excited to be able to offer FREE Garden Starter Kits to Gilsum Residents. On May 30th Garden Starter Kits can be picked up outside the church from 10AM- 12 NOON during the same hours of the weekly food pantry. OR doorstep deliveries can be arranged if you message Sarah at sdhusted603@gmail.com or message us on Gilsum Community facebook.We have done our best source vegetable plants, herb plants, and seed packets locally from Vera Flora Farm, Julie’s Garden, Ridge View Farm, Gilsum Gardens, and Emerson Brook Sustainability Project as well as some donations from wonderful neighbors!

GILSUM STILL ROCKS!!

Even though the 2020 Gilsum Rock Swap has been canceled…we want Gilsum children and adults to keep that unifying Rock Swap spirit. The Gilsum Recreation Committee has created activities to keep this town rockin’!

– Join the “COMMUNITY ROCK CONCERT” starting at the Frog Pond! We are asking all residents to decorate a rock and leave it for all to see in the flower bed or under the Gilsum sign at the Frog Pond! It’s going to be a fun way to “gather” as a community & celebrate while we can’t physically be together!

– Don’t stop there! DECORATE – DESIGN – CREATE – EXPLORE & FIND because

When we feel it is safe to do so, we will celebrate by having a special Rock Swap day just for us!  You will have a chance to show off your Gilsum rock finds, reveal your rock creations and swap all you wish with other kids and adults!

Ready, set, ROCK!

Food Assistance

Good afternoon neighbors!
Several volunteers (members of the Gilsum Recreation Committee, the Gilsum Congregational Church, with the help of others) in town are wondering if there are members of our community who could use a little bit of assistance during this uncertain time.
The group is willing to collect and distribute food and necessary items to assist families in need.
Please send this page a private message or email gilsumchurch@gmail.com
Non-perishables and household necessity items can be left in a donation bin in front of the Church door.  Thank you!

For those that can help out, please leave items in the box outside the Gilsum Congregational Church.
Thank you
