INTERFAITH CARE FOR CREATION COMMUNITY GARDEN PROJECT
Interfaith Care for Creation (IFCC), formed through the work of the Columbia Climate Change Coalition (CCCC), is an emerging group, rooted in gratitude for the earth that has been lent to us. We call on all faith communities, in their diversity and commonality, to accept the sacred responsibility to protect the planet.
IFCC's Garden Project provides an opportunity for people from different spiritual communities to work together to grow vegetables and fruits for their own low-income members and for distribution to area food banks and pantries to help feed those in need.
Several houses of worship will provide land for these garden plots. Volunteers from various faith communities are partnered with volunteers from other faith communities that do not have enough garden space, to work in the gardens together. This fosters understanding, friendship, and cooperation among different faith groups while working to provide food for themselves and others.
Using ground for interfaith gardening also offers faith communities an eco-friendly alternative to lawn care, the opportunity for members to learn more about composting, gardening, food cycles, mother nature, each other and many other parts of the great creation.A weatherization project is also being planned to promote weatherization and energy efficiency for everyone with a special eye to ways to help low-income families save energy dollars. There will be opportunities to teach and learn with each of these projects. If you have special expertise or a desire to learn, please volunteer to help with these projects, as we work together to become better neighbors and better stewards of all God's Creation.
