May 5: Green Faith with Pamela Dolan

The Rev. Pamela Dolan will be our speaker on May 5. Pamela is the rector of Good Shepherd Episcopal church in Town and Country, and a regular contributor to the St. Louis Post Dispatch. Her church started an urban farm garden last year. Pamela will lead a discussion on “Green Faith,” the intersections of ecology, theology, and gardening.

From Pamela’s latest article in the Post Dispatch:

Last spring my parish started a garden. We called it a community garden, because we really want community members involved, but in fact it’s more like what some are now referring to as food pantry or food bank gardens. We grow vegetables in order to give them away to programs that feed the hungry. It’s a simple model, and can be practiced by churches (or mosques or synagogues or meeting houses) in urban and suburban settings, not just by those congregations with acres of tillable land to spare. (Read more on the Post Dispatch’s site.)
