Farm Friday

We're off to a two day conference at Duke Divinity School called "Summoned Toward Wholeness," which is on the topic of food and faith.  A keynote speaker is Joel Salatin, who describes his way of farming as "beyond organic" and has been featured in a number of films, including Food Inc. and Fresh.  We have heard Joel speak at other conferences and he is always entertaining and inspirational.  Part of the conference is visiting the Anatoth Community Garden, which describes its mission as "cultivating peace by using regenerative agriculture to connect people with their neighbors, the land, and God."  It's always refreshing to know there are people of faith who hold our values, stressing the importance of caring for the land and our bodies.  

Have a great weekend!
