He also holds two Masters degrees, one in theology and the other in education. Additionally, he has an earned doctorate in educational epistemology. He has planted and maintains two orchards, apples (150 trees) and haskap (3,000 bushes), and farms tame grass hay for sale and raises alfalfa in a riparian area for the local elk and white-tail deer.
We live very simple lives in north-central Canada. We raise food for free distribution, which is a basic human right. No person should have to worry about where their next meal comes from, nor the quality of their food. As ecumenical people of faith we choose to do this through the guidelines of the Catholic Worker Movement, whose goal is to simply feed the hungry without discrimination.
We invite you to feast on the food that we grow here, as well as to join us in upholding and promoting these values.
