Forefeast of the Transfiguration
MY FAMILY had a wonderful morning yesterday at my friend Tom Brown's Meadowlark Farm. We took a nice walk, picked peaches and tomatoes and picked up some homemade salsa and locally made soap. The kids played with a sheep, were chased by a rooster, and enjoyed some shade while playing on the playground.
This was my first time to Tom's farm. And it was sheer delight.
The day before, Tom had invited me to "ponder the possibilities" of how his farm could contribute to our summer fundraising campaign. And so we pondered.
Here's what we came up with:
Next Friday and Saturday (August 12-13), visit the Meadowlark Farm and 50% of all the proceeds of your pickings will be donated to Eighth Day Institute. Just print off this coupon, and they'll take care of the rest.
I'll be there at 11 am on Saturday morning for a short reflection by Tom. He'll share about his experience of starting and maintaining the farm (it was only six years ago that he launched this endeavor).
Their hours are 9 am - 6 pm. Their address is 11249 SW 160th St in Rose Hill, KS 67133. For more details, visit their website.
I hope you'll visit Tom's farm next weekend. You'll be supporting locally grown food and Eighth Day Institute.
P.S. We've raised $18,490 of the $30,000 we need to raise this summer. If you can't join us next weekend, please consider contributing to our summer fundraising campaign by becoming an Eighth Day Member. You'll receive the perks and we'll be able to continue developing our work of cultural renewal for the rest of this year.
