With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she attended St. John’s University in Collegeville and completed a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the years, her quest to merge diverse religious beliefs and practices through the commonalities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal source of love in all people.

Pumpkin Festivity

I've spent this past year working on a community food bank project. The project started with a local church learning about permaculture and lasagna garden layering technique. After doing the ground preparation in early March, the church community decided to plant a crop in which all the members, regardless of age or ability, could participate. They chose pumpkins.

My job was to help them anticipate the various needs of the plants and of gardening in general throughout the project. As you can see from the above photo, they are now at harvest. This next weekend, October 3rd and 4th, they will hold a pumpkin sale and fall festival to celebrate their accomplishment. The money raised from the sale of the pumpkins and the purchase of treats will go to benefit the local food bank.
