Working Backwards Through the Food System October 8 & (

Join Kinesis Presbyterian Campus Ministry for a Fall Break Mission Plunge. This is a unique opportunity to learn about Louisville by working backwards through the food system. We will begin with dinning at a local restaurant, explore food options in the city, work on local community gardens and farms, and then conclude our experience with Breaking New Grounds (a local composting organization).

This two day experience will be on the Monday and Tuesday of Fall Break (October 8 & 9). It costs just $15 per person, and includes two days of meals. To register or ask questions, contact Rachel Parsons-Wells at rparsons.wells@gmail.com.
