I have often looked at myself as a jack of all trades but probably a master of none. I have been a teacher, a preacher, a spiritual director and ecologist and I have enjoyed all these ministries. But there is one that has really grounded me, literally, and that is gardening.
For eight years, I worked on a three-acre garden helping to provide produce for some 80 families. More recently, I have worked in the garden at the Adorers’ Ruma Center. Here we grow vegetables for our own kitchen.
