“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. Please contact the church office for contact information for this year’s coordinator.
