Teaching the children

Several days after the mapling season began, Sr. Lilli Ana’s Thursday afternoon “Outdoor Adventure Club” helped collect sap. Afterwards, they gathered in our kitchen to taste the sap, learn about the seasons of a tree, see the various stages of evaporating and finishing, and finally to try out the finished syrup on biscuits they baked themselves.

The precious children in this picture will join millions of others in facing a bleak future, where food has been genetically modified beyond repair, where the Earth’s resources have been exploited to exhaustion and life itself will be in danger. We don’t think it has to be that way; we help educate for a different, more hopeful future — for all the children of Earth.
