Farm SignAn Update from Stephanie Campbell on the Farm: Last Tuesday, Brian Clark and I made our first delivery of St. Peter's Farm fresh organic produce to Father Juan Reyes and his wife of Christ Church in Brentwood. Many thanks to our gardeners who donated extra produce! Father Juan, also an avid gardener, was so gracious and noted that the produce would be helpful to local families. His Church also has plans to start a garden like St. Peter's Farm so we invited him to visit, with hopes that our communities can find ways to help each other. The Episcopal Ministries of Long Island has been so supportive of St. Peter's Organic Victory Garden. We will be making another delivery next Tuesday so anyone with extra produce who would like to add to our delivery, please contact Stephanie Campbell or Brian Clark.
