Growing a community of faith could be easier when you grow a community garden.
City or country, there appears to be a trend toward social isolation. Is it crazy that people can be connected on social media 24/7 but not know their neighbour?
However, a remedy is grassroots community-building, and food production is at the centre of this counter-cultural movement!
If your parish has a spare patch of dirt and some keen gardeners, the community garden may be an exciting option for connecting with others in your neighbourhood. Imagine offering hospitality to your suburb/town in the form of a common gardening activity where you can cook and eat the produce together. The sky is the limit!
