All Church Social Justice Work Project at Tillers International, May 14
All Ages are invited to join us in a work day at Tillers. We are planning to paint a barn so all abilities are welcome. Join us in working together, deepening relationships and helping this amazing organization!
Tillers International’s mission is to preserve, study, and exchange low-capital technologies that increase the sustainability and productivity of people in rural communities. They hope to foster international learning communities by understanding local conditions, inspiring experimentation, and promoting sustainability. They work closely with partners in Uganda and Mozambique.
Locally, Tillers offers classes in farming with draft animals, as well as traditional farm homesteading and artisanal skills, such as blacksmithing, woodworking, coopering, beekeeping, cheesemaking, timber framing, canning and preserving food, and much more. Check them out at: http://tillersinternational.org/
Please sign up in the foyer or reply to the Facebook event on the People’s Church Facebook page if you can participate in this fun and meaningful day working together! Plan to bring a sack lunch for a midday picnic (and a paint brush if you have one).
Questions? Contact Heidi Johnson.
