The Dedication of Jerusalem Farm

A new farm is getting established. But Jerusalem Farm is located in the heart of the city. On Tuesday May 1 (about 9 months after the effort commenced) leaders, community members, and friends of the Farm gathered for a dedication Mass to celebrate the “birth” of this exciting new project and community.

    • Joe,
      The interview is part of a short video being produced by Kyle Bloom (www.kylebloom.com) for the Kansas City diocese. I am sure Jersualem Farm will share the video after it is complete.
