farm the land grow the spirit, farming, groundhog, southside, summer institute
Maggie Nowak (the farmer formerly known as Maggie Krueger) joins Amirah and Will to talk about her experiences participating in Stony Point Center's Farm the Land, Grow the Spirit Summer Institute program and her work now with Southside Community Land Trust in Providence, RI. Their conversation touches on the process of becoming a farmer, arguments they had in 2015 about killing groundhogs, bringing your faith tradition into a non-religious work space, rocks, racial justice, and the holy month of Ramadan...because it's Ramadan.

farming, interfaith, multifaith, summer institute
Amirah is joined by Finnigan and Noam, two of this year's Summer Institute Participants. The Stony Point Center "Farm the Land, Grow the Spirit" Summer Institute is a program for young adults that integrates intentional community living and farming into a multifaith learning environment. The three of them reflect on their time spent farming this summer, share conversation about food, review their experiences interacting with agriculturally-themed sacred texts, and more.
