Together we garden in the summer.
We live very simple lives in north-central Canada. We raise food for free distribution as a basic human right. No person should have to worry about housing, health care, clothing, or where their next meal comes from, including 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.
Anyone who comes to us is free to feast on the food that we grow here, as well as to join us in upholding and promoting these values.
