Food Inc. and more

 

“We are stewards to beating hearts and thirsty roots; a title that cannot be taken lightly”  (Fig & Fauna)

That quotation is from a blog entry written by Fig + Fauna Farm owners Michelle and Michael Martin. They raise food in South Florida.

As the Creation Care team moves through showing and teaching from the Food, Inc. DVD, the distance we are from the sources of our food is made obvious.  

  • What would your meals be like if you were able to raise your animal from egg to maturity?
  • Would you feel deeper respect and gratitude for the animal?

How deeply the rituals of planting, nurturing, and harvesting connect us to the lifestyles of the early followers of Jesus….and disconnect us from the facelessness and greed surrounding the industry of food.

Please join us as we faithfully explore our food industry and our personal choices together.

Black Mountain Home Garden Project

Only two more chances to volunteer at the Garden!!!

It is time to harvest the last of the crops and prepare the soil for the next planting at the Black Mountain Home Garden Project. This Saturday, September 22, from 9:00 – 11:00 am, we will use the “lasagna garden” technique to enrich the soil.  We will have piles of dirt, mulch, manure, and wood chips to layer over the existing cardboard and wood chip-covered paths for planting in the spring.

We planted 500 sweet potato plants in May and are expecting to dig up 1000 pounds of sweet potatoes on Saturday, September 29, from 9:00 – 11:00 am. This is the fun part because you don’t know what you will find until you dig it up. It is like digging for buried treasure.

Please join us in a very special part of God’s creation on September 22 or 29 as we close out the Garden Project for 2012. Turn into the property off Lake Eden Road by the stone silo with the cross on it. Bring gloves and drinking water.
