“What if our homes and churches went from being primarily sites of consumption to places of production? What if we planted church-supported community gardens, permaculture parishes, transition churches, and apostolic farms that fed entire neighborhoods? What if seminaries trained every future pastor in the agrarian arts, ecological literacy and sunshine-powered living? What if we created infrastructures of holiness, where God’s kingdom of shalom could flourish on earth as in heaven?” (Fred Bahnson in Making Peace with the Land: God’s Call to Reconcile with Creation)
Whether or not you attend St. Thomas, you are warmly invited to participate in Community Garden workshops and events.
