Lower Susquehanna Synod Assembly
Volunteers who agree to serve at Wittel Farm will have an opportunity to particpate in, and learn more about the emerging partnership between the Lutheran Camping Corporation (LCC), our synod, and the Lancaster Hunger Coalition. Five acres of land are now being utilized for growing vegetables and herbs at the Wittel Farm, and the produce is being distributed through the Hunger-Free Lancaster Coalition to people living with the realities of food insecurity in Lancaster County. Relying mostly on volunteer help throughout the planting, growing, and harvesting season, The Growing Project is led by a number of synod pastors and LCC leaders, and supported primarily by donations.
Volunteers will assist with a variety of hands-on projects at the farm, and hear about how the farm distributes fresh produce, including the Wednesday evening “farmers market” sharing that happens at Grace Lutheran in Lancaster city, during the summer. They will also hear about Sunday evening meals and worship experiences happening at the farm on the first Sunday of each month. Volunteers should plan on meeting at the Wittel Farm, on the morning of June 2, ready to begin work by 9:00 AM, and will conclude their time at the farm by about 12:00 N. More details will be sent to those who register, as we approach the Synod Assembly Day of Service.
9:00am - 12:00pm EDT
