WILMINGTON — Wilmington Friends Meeting invites the community to attend the latest conversation in their Living Witness series. It is devoted to conversations about people bearing witness to resurrection, discarding death-dealing ways and celebrating new life breaking in.
Presenter Yolanda Owens will seek to answer the question: “How can faith — and a mustard seed — change the world?” at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4
Owens grew up in Columbus. A participant in 4-H and In-School Scouting, she developed her connection with the land very young. Growing up with a garden in her backyard was only the beginning of her journey that took her to Ghana, West Africa, where she discovered that food is life.
She is a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences where she also serves as President of the Alumni Society Board. An active participant in her community, she along with four other women helped to found Black Lactation Circle, a breastfeeding support and advocacy group for Black mothers in Central Ohio.
Owens is a wife, a mother, and a supporter of those trying to do right by the people and the land. She is the Chief Cultivator of Forage + Black.
For those interested in this unique perspective on the intersection of growing and faith, please join us on Zoom at 2 p.m. this Saturday; details can be found at https://wilmingtonfriendsohio.org/fall-2021-conversation-series-living-witness/ and interested participants may register by emailing [email protected] .
