    The Farm is located on Guerin Catholic’s beautiful 72-acre campus, 它还举办了一个暑期实习项目, 选修课程, 还有为年轻学生举办的夏令营. Students and student interns get hands-on experience growing organic vegetables, and all the while they learn about regenerative agriculture, 现代粮食系统, and the interconnectedness of God’s creation.

    St. 伊西多尔农场 donates the first and best 10% of its weekly produce to target local food insecurity. The remaining food goes to the Farm’s Veggie Box customers, who are typically members of the Guerin Catholic community. The Veggie Box program is a CSA consisting of a weekly box of fresh, 五月到九月的应季农产品.

    No other high school in Indiana – private or public – is doing something quite like this. 在三个季节里,圣. 伊西多尔农场 has donated over 2300 pounds of fresh organic produce to local families; it has engaged 110 students in the internship and/or elective course; and it has filled over 1000 weekly boxes of fresh produce for its customers. Guerin Catholic is a leader in hands-on ecological education.

    在未来St. 伊西多尔农场希望能养活更多的人, 转移学校的食物垃圾, 领导食物工作坊, 为母亲节的促销活动种花. 请与. 扎克·哈塞尔霍斯特是农场的主管 zhaselhorst@hotelsclue.com 了解更多信息.

        In 2015 教皇弗朗西斯 issued his papal encyclical letter titled Laudato Si”, which is translated to “Praised Be,” a reference to St. Francis of Assisi’s famous prayer of praise for Creation. The encyclical’s subtitle is “On Care for our Common Home,” and in the document 教皇弗朗西斯 exhorts Christians to view humanity and the natural environment as deeply interconnected and interdependent.

        Below are some selections from Chapter Six: “Ecological Education and Spirituality.” This papal encyclical, and especially the following excerpts, serve as the inspiration for St. 伊西多尔农场的使命和愿景.

        Only by cultivating sound virtues will people be able to make a selfless ecological commitment. A person who could afford to spend and consume more but regularly uses less heating and wears warmer clothes, shows the kind of convictions and attitudes which help to protect the environment. There is a nobility in the duty to care for creation through little daily actions, and it is wonderful how education can bring about real changes in lifestyle… Reusing something instead of immediately discarding it, 只要有正确的理由, can be an act of love which expressed our own dignity.

        We must not think that these efforts are not going to change the world. 他们有益于社会, 常常不为我们所知, 因为它们唤起了一种美德, 虽然看不见的, 不可避免地会蔓延.

        Ecological education can take place in a variety of settings: at school, 在家庭中, 在媒体上, 在教理讲授和其他地方. Good education plants seeds when we are young, and these continue to bear fruit throughout life.

        All Christian communities have an important role to play in ecological education. It is my hope that our seminaries and houses of formation will provide an education in responsible simplicity of life, 在对上帝的世界的感恩沉思中, and in concern for the needs of the poor and the protection of the environment.
