Dinner and Documentary Screening with The Farminary of Princeton Theological Seminary
Formerly a Christmas tree and sod farm, the Farminary at Princeton Theological Seminary is a 21-acre farm that overlooks a pond and includes a 200′ by 100′ garden plot, and a barn that is used for discussion and a place for sharing meals.
Launched in 2015, the Farminary is a place where theological education is integrated with small-scale regenerative agriculture to train faith leaders who are conversant in the areas of ecology, sustainability, and food justice. It is designed to train students to challenge society’s 24-7 culture of productivity by following a different rhythm, one that is governed by the seasons and Sabbath.
“The project’s main goal is to form leaders by cultivating agrarian sensibilities within them like paying attention to the seasons, understanding the interconnectedness of life and death, and becoming comfortable with failure,” says Nate Stucky, director of the Farminary Project.
This fall, AHCC has 2 opportunities the opportunity to engage with the Farminary. This one, on Wednesday October 4, when Nate Stucky will come to Hartford and then again on October 21 when AHCC will travel to Princeton (details and registration here).
The October 4 event will begin with a light dinner, then we will watch part one of the documentary Sabbath, after which Nate will engage us in conversation and discussion.
This is a FREE event hosted by AHCC’s Climate Action Team, but registration is REQUIRED: https://www.ahcc.org/civicrm/event/info/?reset=1&id=196
