This is such a good cause – please cast your vote for it – it is an interfaith activity that churches and  synagogues participate in, where they take underutilized parking lots, and turn them into farms, then they reverse tithe by giving 90% of what they grow and raise to the community keeping only 10% for the use of the diocese or congregation. Please VOTE – and you will help this amazing cause be chosen for a $100,000 grant to continue their good work. It is called NETIYA and here is the link – please vote today!!!

Here is a note posted by a participant in the program – with a video – amazingly good work – if you vote today – they may win a grant of $100,000 to continue their interfaith collaboration helping the needy – please click on the above link and vote ! I did!

We converted a crab grass and sun-bleached lawn into an edible landscape (1200 sq. ft organic garden, and 800 sq. ft. orchard). We grow food together. Through a reverse tithing, we give 90% of all the food to address food insecurity. Want to do this at your institution?
