Healthy Food for Communities

Union Presbyterian Seminary's most recent podcast addresses ways to expand access to healthy food: Shalom Farms at Union

Shalom Farms is growing food in the heart of the city’s Northside on five acres of the seminary's Westwood Tract.

Its executive director Dominic Barrett sat down with our alumnus Nelson Reveley to explain his vision for Shalom Farms at Union Seminary and why it matters. [Listen Here].
