April 29
The Seventh Principle: Saving the Web
Led by Worship Team members Adrienne Ellis, Mark Jackson, and Mike Gold
Have you heard of Juliana v. The United States? 21 kids are in the process of suing the government for not doing enough to stop climate change so that they and future generations can have a future. As a follow-up to Earth Day, we look at that case, how we are all connected to each other and the earth, why it matters, and what we can do.

 Focus Collection for April:
Berea Community Learning Farm

This month we are sponsoring Berea Community Learning Farm, a volunteer run
organization helping people grow their own food and donating thousands of pounds of organic
vegetables to those in need. Key goals are: to educate families about nutrition, agriculture, and
growing organic food; to educate children about plant biology and health; and to assist low-income residents in establishing home gardens for better health and nutrition. The farm rents garden plots to individuals and families. Amenities include: composted soil, drip irrigation, access to basic tools for gardening, an orientation program, and starter plants.
A few highlights of the farm’s accomplishments in 2017 include:

  • Expanded number of plot holders to 47 gardeners at the farm
  • Worked with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Native Guides
  • Partnered with Baldwin Wallace University to provide fresh greens for their Campus Kitchen project
  • Donated 2,200 pounds of fresh vegetables to help alleviate hunger and improve nutrition for local families in need.

Visitors, volunteers, and growers from many area communities are welcome at BCLF
located at former Riveredge Elementary School in Berea off N. Rocky River Drive. Please
contribute generously to Berea Community Learning Farm.
