Together we will explore the relationships between environmentalism, gardening, and pollinators, all examined through the lens of faith.

Come join Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake (IPC), American Chestnut Land Trust (ACLT), and faithful allies from across Southern MD for a special learning opportunity all about Faith, Gardening, and Pollinators!  Let's take a dive together into the complex relationships between pollinators-and-crops, and take a deeper look at how faith-groups can provide service to their communities and the environment through community gardening. 

September 10th @10:00am

This will be an outdoor based event, please make sure to bring...
