55 Alive!

Event Date: 
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 11:30am - 1:00pm
Josh Feyen (First Cong member) is in graduate school at Edgewood College in the Sustainability Leadership Master's Program. This past summer, Josh visited Paru Paru, one of six villages in a uniquely-designated area high in the Andes Mountains. This is the birthplace of the potato. Josh returned with video, photos and stories about a small group of people dedicated to growing, preserving and sharing potato plants, culture and knowledge. Learn about traditional planting and harvesting, and the Park's modern-day efforts to keep potato seed stock free from biotech company royalties, for humanity to share this amazingly adaptable staple crop. And photos of llamas and alpacas, because they're just cute.The cost of the lunch to the church is $10.00 per person and we ask that you donate as you are able to offset this expense. Please RSVP by Sunday, February 4 to the church office or on the sign-up at the back of the Sanctuary.
