Food conferences.....

There are four different food conferences going on in North Carolina over the same time period in February and early March. If you are any type of foodie, community gardener, have concerns about the hungry, or are a food revolutionary of any sort, you should find a conference somewhere in this great state where you will fit right in.

(1) Come to the Table - Feb. 25th. -
Garysburg - Feb 26th. - Boone - Feb. 27th. - Charlotte.
(2) Read Food Real Medicine - February 27th. - March 1st. - Chapel Hill.
(3) The Hunger Conference - February 27th. and 28th. - Raleigh.
Food Summit - March 2nd. and 3rd. - Raleigh.

We hope you will check out the different conference links, find a conference that is calling your name, and will attend.


Sunday afternoon the Seagrove Community Garden hosted a service of thanksgiving for the garden's bounty, and a serpentine prayerful/contemplative walk through the garden, all followed by a chili supper at the Seagrove UMC's fellowship hall.
Vespers --- in this case, 2 hymns, 2 psalms, a story and a prayer.
Prayerful, serpentine walk through the garden's aisles, reading the quotes on peace and reconciliation.

The honorable Mrs. Mayor of Whynot, Sue Spencer, the lady whose formidable task is to keep the mayor on track.

On Sunday afternoon October 26th., at 3:30 PM, we will be hosting a short service of thanksgiving, a silent, prayerful, serpentine walk-thru of the garden, and a chili supper in the fellowship hall of Seagrove United Methodist Church. We hope you will be able to attend.
