We are in the prep stages for our service trip this summer to Bethlehem Farm in Alderson, West Virginia. Trip dates are July 29th-August 6th. We still have a few spaces remaining!
On this trip, we'll be doing needed home repairs in the local community. This part of our country has been hit hard by extraction mining methods, the resulting pollution and damage to their environment, a lack of access to quality health care and high unemployment. There is also a warm and supportive spirit, resilience, strength and hope among the residents of this Appalachian area. During our week, our team will be living sustainably on Bethlehem Farm. We have much to learn and bring back to our community!
More trip details are available here (including a registration form and contact information for coordinators). Note that financial assistance is available. We hope to have interested folks sign up by April 28th since that will be our 3rd pre-trip gathering.
