Creation Care Corner- July Challenge of the Month

July’s challenge is to visit a Farmers’ Market. We are planning several outings to local markets in July and would love for you to join us!

Did you know that conventionally sourced produce travels about 27 times farther than locally or regionally sourced produce? Farmers Markets help preserve our local farms, help support our local economy and increase access to healthy food for all members of our community, while supporting sustainability. (Source:
