Presbyterian Mission moment…April 19 – Earth
Maria de los Angeles used to depend on purchasing expensive
produce at the market in order to feed her family. All that has
changed now because of a Presbyterian World Service &
Development program working to help farmers in her region end
hunger by planting new types of fruits and vegetables and
the soil and make organic fertilizers. This resourcefulness is
allowing Maria and other farmers like her to succeed. Maria is
careful to give back what she takes, by helping to nurture her
small piece of land by planting new trees and using
environmentally sustainable farming techniques—and sharing
this knowledge with her children and community to help ensure
better futures for all.
