Faith Family Christian Center (FFCC) is creating a local community garden to help supply fresh organic produce to those who cannot afford grocery store prices. They will bring produce that have healing effects on the body to the lower income areas. They seek to expand community consciousness about nutrition, offer a training ground where people can learn to grow their own food, and offer a healing space. They also seek to increase community consciousness of and support for the importance of deep community involvement in solving the communities most pressing challenges, and seek to offer a space where a culture of community belonging, and shared ownership and therefore responsibility can flourish. Goals – In the first year of operation, they aim to provide 100 families with low/no cost produce.
On June 9th, FFCC will host a community festival to draw business, community organizations, and community members to the church location where the garden will be. The event will feature live music and dance performances.
Third City Coalition will be a vendor at the event - stop by our booth and say hello!
