What better way to show gratitude as a community than sharing food? Join Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake (IPC) and come together to celebrate the Autumn Equinox in a Harvest of Gratitude on September 22, 5pm at Lancaster County Central Park.
We will walk around the park and learn about local community garden initiatives with Hawa Lassanah. We will learn how food justice relates to efforts towards clean water in our communities.
Hawa Lassanah is the founder of DECA City Farms, a urban agriculture venture. The initiative is promoting equitable access to food by growing produce (which is then sold on a pay-what-you-can basis) at community gardens in Lancaster County Central Park. It has also established a local CSA (community support agriculture) program.
The program will be led with support from Katie Ruth (IPC’s regional coordinator), Malinda Clatterbuck (IPC Lancaster Task Force), and Keith Williams from the Lancaster Conservancy.
