Inspiring Creation Care
We are ALL called to be good stewards of the land and resources in which we have been blessed.
Empowering our community to take action.
We would like to acknowledge, thank, and honor the people who were the good stewards of the land in West Chester, Ohio before the European colonization.
Those people include the Adena and Hopewell whose cultures are ancient and predate American settlement. They include the Kaskaskia, a tribe that is no longer in existence due to forced removal. And they include the Wazhazhe, the Shawnee, and the Myaamia (mi ah' mia) who continue to share their gifts with us on this land to this day.
Those gifts, among others, include the knowledge of sustainable agriculture and horticulture that contribute to what we are trying to accomplish here today.
