Product Description

• Offers specific examples of success stories of faith communities involved in the faith + food movement
• Engaging stories with photos in local communities and neighborhoods showing the church in action

Many congregations, schools, and organizations are reaching out into their neighborhoods to share God's story of abundance by establishing community gardens, beehive colonies, and other agricultural initiatives. They are creatively using their land and property; providing training, inspiration, and cross-cultural experiences for all ages; while at the same time feeding the hungry and building community relationships. Too often food banks only take non-perishables loaded with preservatives and sodium. Church entities involved in agricultural ministries are able to provide healthy food from their gardens to feeding programs, food pantries, and others in need.

This book tells the tale of 25 such communities in story and image. An inspiration for others to develop such projects, food and faith can go hand-in-hand as we get our hands dirty while learning more about what Genesis 2 describes as God "planted" a garden. Gardening can be seen on the rooftop of a church in the city, beehives in the midst of a seminary, or a local community garden alongside the church's parking lot. Discover where this movement is alive and growing, and find ideas for starting your own "food and faith" initiative in your own backyard, roof, or front porch.

Audience: Episcopal: congregations, camps and conference centers, schools, seminaries; Individuals: gardeners, farmers, beekeepers (and wannabes); church leadership: vestry members, outreach committees, property managers
