JustFaith – Sacred Land: Food and Farming

(Registration required) Zoom and In-person classes
In his letter Laudato Sì, Pope Francis teaches about the need to care for our common home, Earth. JustFaith – Sacred Land: Food and Farming will explore our connection with the land and our responsibility for it. Together, small groups learn how food and farming practices affect the climate crisis, marginalized communities, and their own health and spiritual wellbeing. Participants explore practical ways to support, advocate for, and implement sustainable food and farming practices in the communities and the institutions of which they’re a part — whether it’s their workplace, congregation, apartment complex, or neighborhood. Each participant works toward a plan of action: for example, this could be starting a composting program with their next-door neighbors, building a community garden with their congregation, or advocating for local and national policies that support sustainable food and farming practices.
