Mother Carr’s Organic Farm is moving full steam ahead for 2014, after a great year of learning in 2013. Project Director Anthony Williamson and the volunteer team are working diligently to have a successful harvest this year. Along with the variety of organic vegetables and spices, the farm now has a colony of bees that are producing honey that have been distributed along with the produce to shareholders. We operate with a 22-week harvest season. Providing assistance to Mother Carr’s Organic Farm is Faith in Place, an organization that inspires religious people of diverse faiths to care for the earth through connection, education, and advocacy. Their assistance includes helping the farm secure grant funds and promoting the farm to potential donors and other supporters. With the help of Faith in Place, Mother Carr’s Organic Farm is developing a sanctuary for Monarch Butterflies. Volunteers are needed to help with our farm. For more information, contact Brother Rick Nelson or sign up in the church foyer.
