Good news from the folks at Cedar Grove United Methodist Church and the Anathoth Community Garden. They have a new garden director.
Her name is Kate Forer. She served at the Garden as a Duke Divinity School intern from 2006-07.
For three years Forer worked at Perry-Winkle Farm in Chatham County, learning organic and sustainable farming methods, as well as the joys of hard work. She found her time at Perry-Winkle Farm deeply rewarding and learned how to grow food and flowers, go to market and build relationships to benefit farm operations. She learned bio-intensive farming from past Anathoth Director Fred Bahnson. She learned how to grow food without petroleum and in the healthiest and most productive way possible.
Forer received her Master of Divinity from Duke and is an ordained pastor in the United Church of Christ (UCC). Most recently she was an Associate Pastor at the First Congregational Church of Greenwich in Old Greenwich, CT.
