Sustainability & Christian Stewardship

April 21, 2021

Gardening is part of our families approach to Catholic wellness.  To us it goes hand in hand with being good stewards of what we've been given.  We have an ordinary, town lot - about a third of an acre.  On it we have several fruit trees, berry bushes, one (overgrown) herb garden and three raised beds for vegetables.

This leaves a lot of space so every year we try to add something.  This year we weren't really able to expan but did groundhog proof two of three raised beds - which was quite an undertaking!

This is an old video but I wanted to share it because I think it shares some interesting info on food security.  What I don't really talk about is how much more nutritious fresh produce is than store bought but I will be covering it in a future article.

I am also going to be doing more videos on urban farming and general wellness.

In this video I share a bit about what I'm learning about Agroecology or Sustainable Agriculture, the concept of Christian stewardship and a couple great resources on these topics by sustainable farming expert Joel Salatin including You Can Farm and The Marvelous Pigness of Pigs

Please note, because this is an older video the contact and media info on it is no longer accurate but I think the info is helpful.
