Course: Bahá’í Perspectives on Agriculture and Food (2021)
Faculty Mentor: Paul Hanley

Thanks for the opportunity to participate in an excellent course! I learned lots and reviewed many quotations and ideas related to Bahá’í Perspectives on Agriculture and Food. We studied as a small group from Saugeen Shores, Ontario, Canada, with three Bahá’ís and three friends of the Faith. We met weekly to discuss the material which brought us closer as friends. Together we undertook the building of a 20 x 36 foot poly tunnel for veggie growing. As we learn to grow effectively, we will share with friends, neighbors, and local food banks. This continues to be a learning and advancing project. Many thanks!
