“Food and Faith” retreat with the folks from Shalom Farms, at Camp Westview on the James!  Friday evening, April 13 through Sunday morning, April 15 (we’ll be back by noon).  Join us as we talk about food, farming, feasting, famine, and faith.  Does it matter if my food is local?  What does any of this have to do with faith?  The cost is $15 per person and the deadline to register is March 29 – bring your cash or check to dinner that night and let Deborah know you’re coming.  We have some scholarship money, if you would like help with the cost of the retreat – just let Deborah know.


Let me know if you have any questions!
