In her sermon on Sunday, Pastor Lacey mentioned our new exploration of whether CUCC might be part of a CSA (a kind of buying group) connecting black farmers to local congregations.
If this sounded interesting to you, come to the meeting Thursday, December 10th at 5pm.
The 10 congregations who have committed so far will meet with staff at RAFI-USA and a farmer from the RAFI network. We will move forward in creating the Wake County Farm-to-Church CSA! Here, we’ll focus on several things:
- Offering a brief overview of what the Farm-to-Church Project is and how it’s currently shaping up
Introducing and connecting all churches involved with one another, as well as with our farmer and RAFI-USA staff
Answering questions and clarifying some key details
Establishing a timeline for: full commitment, drafting the CSA purchase agreement(s), payment schedules, planting timeline, and share delivery logistics
Join us if you are interested.
