As the realities and repercussions of COVID-19 continue to unfold, one area we know will continue to be affected is our food supply. The issues surrounding food justice are broad and often complex. From the use of land, to the treatment of field workers, to the shipping of goods, to the refilling of our food pantries, right down to how we choose the food that goes on our tables, these are all systems in need of just and proactive responses in the best of times.

Our presenters believe that one thing that love could do right now is call a community of people with the ability to plant gardens of all sizes and kinds together – from small parts of herbs, to hundreds of acres of corn – in order to share the love of Christ through word and action, food and labor. We believe that one new and sacrificial act of love that we could offer is to commit to planting more, praying more, and proclaiming more, in order to share the loving, liberating, and live-giving Good News of God’s love with all people.

On offer is practical advice on how you can start a Good News Garden, aka GNG, or how your current agrarian ministry can be a part of the GNG Movement.
