Princeton library will host program by Hungry World Farms steering committee on Jan. 18

PRINCETON — Princeton Public Library will host a program led by the steering committee of Hungry World Farms of Tiskilwa at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 18.

Newly established at the site of the former Plow Creek Farms, Hungry World Farms is in a vision-to-reality stage as a new non-profit organization whose mission is “seeking the well-being of all. Hungry World Farm inspires and educates people about healthy fields, food, and bodies while caring for the Earth.”

Andy Krabill, Brandie Lanier, Cal Zehr and Dennis Zehr will be on hand to talk about the formation of the organization and their future vision for the program. Bring your ideas of what might be added to their plans.

The concept of Hungry World Farm began through local conversations and a review of other farm-based ministries that teach about growing and consuming healthy food. Hungry World Farm will focus on educating people about food production, distribution, and consumption; addressing spiritual hunger in people’s’ lives; training local and international interns in farming techniques; and providing retreats for holistic growth and health.
