Food, Fellowship and the Global Farmer Experience

On Sunday, October 9, supporters of the Hartsburg-Columbia Missouri Growing Project gathered at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church for food, fellowship and an opportunity to step into the shoes of their global neighbors.

The evening included a delicious potluck meal that featured a local ham from Patchwork Family Farms and local honey ice cream from Giofre Apiaries.

The group also unveiled their 2022 raffle quilt, called “Crowns of Hope”, the proceeds of which are combined with a variety of other activities and contributions to make up their Growing Project.

Participants also tried their hand at the Global Farmer Experience, and piloted the brand-new Bible Study addendum, which will be posted to our Church Resources Page soon. It was a great evening of fun and learning for all!

Are you looking for a great way to invite your community to learn about your global neighbors and engage in important conversations about development work?  The Global Farmer Experience simulation game gives you the chance to step into the shoes of a subsistence farmer and work through the decisions that program participants encounter on a daily basis.
