Workshop series explores connections between food, faith, farming

Sinsinawa Mound Center is sponsoring an online, eight-week program, JustFaith Series—Sacred Land: Food and Farming. Participants will explore our connection with and our responsibility the land. Beginning Monday, Feb. 1, sessions will be held via Zoom every Monday from 6 to 8 p.m. through March 22. A commitment of attending at least seven of the eight sessions is required to register for this series, and space is limited to 10 people.

Participants will learn how food and farming practices affect the climate, marginalized communities and our own health and spiritual well-being. Through prayer, discussion and presentation, we will explore practical ways to support, advocate for and implement sustainable food and farming practices in the communities and the institutions of which we’re a part—whether it’s in our workplace, congregation, apartment complex or neighborhood. Each participant will work toward a plan of action: for example, this could be starting a composting program with our next-door neighbors, building a community garden with our congregation or advocating for local and national policies that support sustainable food and farming practices. Three books will be used for the series: “Braiding Sweetgrass,” “Laudato Si,” and “Earth Prayers.” All are available for purchase from Sinsinawa Book & Gift Gallery (

Presenters include Sinsinawa Mound Center’s Ecological Programming Coordinator Eric Anglada and Linda Sheridan, a Milwaukee-area food and farming advocate who works to bring together Earth stewardship, spirituality, and economic justice.

The fee is $100 per person, and the registration deadline is Jan. 29 at 4 p.m. Please register by contacting Guest Services at 608-748-4411 or visiting our website at
