Celebrating the Seasons ~ Celebrating the Elements
Join the Lancaster One Water Partnership for a 4 part series in 2022 exploring the spiritual underpinnings of seasonal changes, as we seek to find meaning in the world around us. We will visit different parts of the county, and benefit from the knowledge and inspiration of local specialists.
Autumn Equinox – A Harvest of Gratitude
September 22nd, 5-7pm
What better way to show gratitude as a community than sharing food? Join IPC and come together to celebrate the Autumn Equinox in a Harvest of Gratitude. We will walk around Lancaster County Central Park and learn about local community garden initiatives with Hawa Lassanah. We will learn how food justice relates to efforts towards clean water in our communities.
Hawa Lassanah is the founder of DECA City Farms, a urban agriculture venture. The initiative is promoting equitable access to food by growing produce (which is then sold on a pay-what-you-can basis) at community gardens in Lancaster County Central Park. It has also established a local CSA (community support agriculture) program.
The program will be led with support from Katie Ruth (IPC’s regional coordinator), Malinda Clatterbuck (IPC Lancaster Task Force), and Keith Williams from the Lancaster Conservancy.
