Sacred Ground: Cultivating Connections Between Our Faith, Our Food, and the Climate. We examine how our food systems contribute to injustice and to climate change, and how our faiths call us to respond through practical solutions.
The kit is evergreen with great faith-based discussion materials, a Garden Blessing, and
suggested activities for you and your congregation that can be used at any time of year!
