My Faith in Broccoli
Growing Food and Hope in Contaminated Soil
In 2015, I was running a community center and urban farm in a food desert neighborhood, just outside Chicago. I left for 3 weeks to walk the Camino Portuguese, a 150-mile trek up the rocky coast of Portugal and through the Spanish countryside. The farmers I met didn’t speak to me of weeds or pests or chemical enhancements. They only spoke of faith.
