Farms and Food Supply find new, fertile ground:
Province V in Action
Church of the Holy Trinity Unity Garden, South Bend, IN. " The Garden of St. Thérèse offers a “bit of earth” in the midst of an urban landscape, where parishioners and neighbors can meet, dig, sow, weed, and harvest together. Our goal is to create a beautiful place where people can see themselves as created by God, where they can feel safe, enlivened, and connected to God and to other people.

In a neighborhood with limited access to fresh, organic produce, the garden offers witness to God’s love and providence as we learn to raise food, not only for ourselves, but for others in need. The Garden is a community project in the deepest sense—encouraging inter-personal and inter-generational connection, drawing on and extending the skills and gifts of those who participate, transforming ourselves, our parish and our community. We are growing more than just vegetables here!"
