Update letter from David at the Brady Faith Farm
A brief update on the Brady Faith Farm,
This past weekend was very busy at the farm with the Syracuse Grows Community Garden Tour event and continued work on constructing the new washing shed. Early Saturday afternoon a tour bus delivered a group of enthusiastic individuals for a guided tour of the farm. I recently learned that our own Jessi Lyons is one of the founders of Syracuse Grows! For much of the day a large crew led by Vinny managed to complete the arduous task of installing the roof trusses for the washing shed. Please check out the farm’s Facebook site for some recent photos: https://www.fac
There are once again two open work sessions this week: Wednesday 4:30-7:00pm and Saturday 9:00am-1:00pm. There are many tasks to be accomplished on the farm so stop by if you have some time.
Vinny tells me washing shed work will continue on Wednesday 5pm-8pm and all day Saturday starting at 8am. It’s beautiful (and cool) early in the morning at the farm Please coordinate with Vinny if you’re coming early or for times when he needs help throughout the day.
At some point I will gather more information about what folks are interested in doing. Feel free to let me know if there are particular skills you feel might benefit the farm. One thing that younger volunteers might find fun is designing and painting up some signs for the farm. There will be plenty of scrap boards from the washing shed to experiment with.
Correction on regular hours: I understand regular farm hours are 8am-3pm for those interested in stopping by during normal working hours. Please coordinate with Jessi.
Hope to see you at the farm,

His Holiness Pope Francis: Why the only future worth building includes everyone
A single individual is enough for hope to exist, and that individual can be you, says His Holiness Pope Francis in this searing TED Talk delivered directly from Vatican City. In a hopeful message to people of all faiths, to those who have power as well as those who don’t, the spiritual leader provides illuminating commentary on the world as we currently find it and calls for equality, solidarity and tenderness to prevail. “Let us help each other, all together, to remember that the ‘other’ is not a statistic, or a number,” he says. “We all need each other.”
