In response to the growing awareness among members of faith communities that we have not been good stewards of our land and that we have lost connection with our food sources, North Carolina Interfaith Power & Light has developed the Cool Harvest program.
Over four Sundays, beginning June 12, issues of nutrition and sustainability will be interwoven in that take place from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. at Raleigh’s Church of the Nativity, 8849, Ray Road.
On June 12, Dr. Carl Sigel will show the documentary “Nourish” which traces the relationship to food from a global and personal perspective.
On June 19, Sun Butler, a horticulturist, will present how the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Farm and Community Gardens Project is responding to an increasing demand for healthy food in all neighborhoods.
On June 26, Cullen Whitley, an expert organic gardener, will describe how to establish a high-intensity garden at church or home.
On July 3, a session will focus on nutritious foods that can be grown using local produce complete with a tasting.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit Church of the Nativity.
