Charlottesville congregation’s food education ministry grows into its social justice…

The food grown in the gardens is used by Bread & Roses in its cooking classes and to support feeding efforts in the community.

Other stories about recipients of grants from the Episcopal Church’s Genesis Advisory Group on Church Planting can be found here. [Episcopal News Service] The food ministry at Trinity Episcopal Church in Charlottesville, Virginia, starts in the church’s garden. Volunteers till the soil. They weed and water the raised beds. They harvest the produce when it’s ready, their work sessions filled with fellowship and concluding in prayer.The ministry, called Bread & Roses, then brings that fresh produce into the church’s commercially certified kitchen, where it becomes a learning tool in cooking classes that teach lessons in nutrition and healthy cooking techniques.Maria Niechwiadowicz of Bread & Roses holds a cooking demonstration at Trinity Episcopal Church. Teaching nutritional cooking techniques is a key focus of the ministry’s efforts. Photo: Trinity Episcopal ChurchAs a bonus, Bread & Roses, led by program coordinator Maria Niechwiadowicz, is now standing on its own financial legs after getting an early boost from Mission Enterprise Zone and United Thank Offering, or UTO, grants from the Episcopal Church, and more recently, a Jubilee Grant. Bread & Roses’ sustainability relies partly on opening up the kitchen to low-cost rentals by entrepreneurs with upstart food businesses.“Our mission is to transform the ways in which we acquire, cook and relate to the food we eat in Charlottesville,” Niechwiadowicz said. And last year, after a white supremacist rally in the city turned violent and deadly, the ministry “became a really positive place of conversation and healing, trying to dissect what’s going on in our city.”The Unite the Right rally on Aug. 12 drew a mix of neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and other hate groups in defense of Charlottesville’s statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, which had been slated for removal. Violence broke out, one counterprotester was killed and dozens of people were wounded despite the fact that the city shut down the rally at the last minute as tensions escalated.Episcopalians were among the faith-based groups who joined together in nonviolent marches against the hate groups, and Presiding Bishop Michael Curry made a pastoral visit to the city in September.Bread & Roses wasn’t originally intended to support racial reconciliation. But after the clashes last year drew national attention to Charlottesville, Niechwiadowicz said it became clear that the fight for social justice has many fronts and is strengthened by people of faith.“One thing that has really stood out to me, particularly in the events of Charlottesville, there’s a lot of work put into advocacy movements, whether that be racial justice or food equity, but it’s all connected,” she said.That interconnection of social justice issues has guided Bread & Roses from the start. It wasn’t created to be another soup kitchen or food pantry; feeding the hungry isn’t as central to its mission as food education.“We wanted to do something that would address more systemic issues related to food and food justice,” said the Rev. Cass Bailey, vicar of Trinity Episcopal Church.A UTO grant of $17,000 in 2014 helped the church to upgrade its kitchen, part of the church’s $115,000 capital campaign. The Mission Enterprise Zone grants helped pay the part-time program coordinator’s salary through 2017. After an initial $20,000 MEZ grant, Bread & Roses applied for and received additional grants of $10,000 to maintain momentum as the ministry began to flourish. And this year, the ministry received a $3,000 grant from Jubilee Ministries, which supports anti-poverty initiatives.Bread & Roses, a ministry of Trinity Episcopal Church in Charlottesville, Virginia, has partnered with the International Rescue Committee to hold cooking demonstrations at a city farmers market aimed at promoting nutritional cooking techniques and vegetables grown by refugees living in Charlottesville. Photo: International Rescue Committee“They started as an experiment. We probably wouldn’t have funded them [again] if they hadn’t taken off in the first triennium with their first round of grants,” said the Rev. Thomas Brackett, Episcopal Church manager for church planting and mission development. “But they did take off, and they’re making such a huge impact in their community that we couldn’t not fund them [again].”He also noted that Niechwiadowicz has successfully carried the program forward after picking up where the program’s previous coordinators left off. As with many of the ministries that receive MEZ grants, the vision transcends the individual.“They have incredible stories of engaging their community and making a difference in people’s lives,” Brackett said.And beyond the financial support, ministries like Bread & Roses benefit from mentorship provided by Brackett’s team. After receiving the first MEZ grant, Bailey attended a conference with other church planters and new ministry leaders, where he learned about the wide variety of programs that were funded and also saw plenty of similarities.“We were all asking similar questions about how to get this idea that we had off the ground and what kind of issues are common among us in doing a startup ministry,” Bailey said. He also participated in monthly phone conferences that allowed the grant recipients to share their experiences and learn from each other.“We just could not have done it without the support of the MEZ grant,” he said.Niechwiadowicz has been coordinator since 2016, and this year, her salary is funded directly through the ministry’s $43,000 budget. About a third of its income comes from kitchen rentals, another third from local grants and the rest from Trinity.Bailey said the congregation measures the success of Bread & Roses by how many programs it provides, and by that measure it is going strong. The original mission hasn’t changed, but it has evolved in how it partners and collaborates with organizations in the community to expand those programs.Niechwiadowicz works about 20 hours a week as program coordinator – she also is Trinity’s part-time administrator – and teaches some of the cooking classes held in the Bread & Roses kitchen through a partnership with Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital.Every other month, the hospital refers some of its patients to Niechwiadowicz, usually because they are trying to lose weight or lower their blood pressure. During those months, Niechwiadowicz teaches one morning class and one evening class one day a week for three weeks with an emphasis on quick, healthy meals. Class sizes range from two to a dozen students.Other classes that Bread & Roses hosts are more spontaneous, Niechwiadowicz said, such as the classes in Afghan cooking that are being led by an Afghan refugee who lives in Charlottesville.Maria Miseik, left, a Burmese refugee living in Charlottesville, works with Bread & Roses program coordinator Maria Niechwiadowicz on a cooking demonstration last year at a Charlottesville farmers market. Photo: International Rescue CommitteeBread & Roses has other partnerships with community organizations to offer additional classes, and the church has committed to giving half of the food grown in its garden to a free market set up at a public housing complex in the city.Such partnerships “bolster the relationship building that happens through sharing food together. That’s one of the things that Bread & Roses has been really great at,” said Brooke Ray, senior manager of the food and agriculture programs at the Charlottesville branch of the International Rescue Committee, or IRC.The IRC is the federally contracted agency that oversees resettlement of refugees in the Charlottesville area, and much of its work with Bread & Roses has focused on educating newly arrived refugees about healthy options in the American food system. The refugees also can grow vegetables native to their homelands at the urban farm and community gardens run by the IRC, and that has provided additional opportunities for educational partnerships.Last year, Niechwiadowicz started organizing cooking demonstrations once a month at a city farmers market featuring some of the produce harvested by IRC’s clients. The refugee gardeners were invited to help lead the demonstrations, which were a big hit among the farmers market customers, Ray said.“It was so well received, people loved it,” she said. “We sold out of the highlighted vegetable every time we went.”Trinity is doubling its own garden space this year. Volunteers from the congregation and the community tend to the garden beds weekly from May to October, giving them a hands-on role in the success of Bread & Roses. The garden also has played a role in other ministries at the church, such as the Christian formation program, which incorporates spring garden planting into its curriculum for the younger members of the congregation.Bread & Roses “is an outreach program, but it’s connecting the members of Trinity Church to the broader community and vice versa,” Niechwiadowicz said.The church underscored that connection in February by hosting a conference, “Faith-Rooted,” where participants discussed theology of food equity and the social justice work of faith communities.For Niechwiadowicz, living a life of Christ means reaching out to people on the margins of society and listening to their needs, and she thinks such spirituality deepens the work of ministries like Bread & Roses.“We need to continue to recognize that our passion for food equity comes directly out of our faith,” she said. “There’s just more weight to it because of our spirituality.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The 1st century wasn’t the Stone Age. People then were hungry, mistreated, divided by politics, and subjected to violent protests just as much as anyone today. Yet, Jesus placed the focus on the heart and personal transformation rather than societal protest and restructuring. Times haven’t really changed. The answer still remains for Christians to become ignited to make disciples, teach about Jesus, and baptize. The Great Commission is much harder but remains.

Classic Punch ups From the Past – Buck Shelford vs Huw Richards

first_imgMonday Nov 20, 2006 Classic Punch ups From the Past – Buck Shelford vs Huw Richards Buck Shelford was renound for being an All Black hardman. In 1987 when the All Blacks played Wales at Ballymore in the World Cup Semi-Final, the result was 49-6 but was remembered more for Shelford flooring Welsh lock Huw Richards late in the match.When Shelford spied Richards and Gary Whetton having a skirmish the latter alleged the Welshman grabbed his wedding tackle in a maul he decided to put an end to their frolicking and felled Richards with a well placed blow to the head.Though Shelford was also belted by a Welsh player, he remained on his feet and on the field. Richards was not so lucky. After a brief visit to la la land, he woke up to discover referee Kerry Fitzgerald had sent him off for provoking the incident.Remarkably, Shelford escaped censure by the officials and played a major role in the All Blacks winning the final the following weekend.

Chris Hala’ufia huge hit then red card for shoving player’s head into the dirt

first_imgWednesday May 6, 2015 Chris Hala’ufia huge hit then red card for shoving player’s head into the dirt Hard hitting London Welsh number eight Chris Hala’ufia today faces a discplinary hearing for the straight red card he was shown when his side took on Leicester Tigers in the Aviva Premiership recently. It was the same match in which he tackled a streaker. *UPDATE: Hala’ufia has been suspended for 5 weeks after pleading guiltyTongan born Hala’ufia has a bit of history with big tackles, and his disciplinary record will no doubt work against him when it comes to sanctioning in front of the RFU hearing.Despite the big hit appearing to have caused most of the damage, he has actually been charged with striking an opponent, contrary to Law 10.4 (a).The massive tackle knocked Tigers number eight Laurence Pearce to the floor, legally or not. Hala’ufia then took it upon himself to shove Pearce’s head into the turf, possibly displeased with his view that he stayed down for too long. Or, it was just a big ‘f*** you’.The referee checked the incident to look at the tackle, which in itself ran the risk of being penalised, but was alerted to the shove to the head, so was given little choice but to red card Hala’ufia. It’s the type of thing that you really just don’t want to see on a rugby field.Earlier in the match a streaker took to the field, so Hala’ufia delivered a huge hit on him too.*UPDATE: Chris Hala’ufia was today suspended for five weeks after pleading guilty to striking an opponent, contrary to Law 10.4 (a). Antony Davies, sitting as a Sole Judicial Officer at the London Bloomsbury Holiday Inn, imposed the sanction which will encompass the remaining two rounds of the Aviva Premiership and the start of the 2015-16 season.You can view official highlights from the match on page two of this post, and more of Hala’ufia’s big tackles in the Related Posts, listed below the video.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In less than 100m2 property area with required setbacks and parking regulation, this tall and skinny house creates ‘vertical living’ with different floor zonings. In Korea where the real estate is one of the most effective investment tools, purchasing a flat is the common way to increase ones assets.  Living in a flat with living room, kitchen, dining and bedrooms in a single floor, is typical residential environment in Seoul. Considering economic value of flats through redevelopment and the familiarity of living infrastructure, a vertically stacked house with small floor area is a provocative residential type in this culture. The additional cost based on complicated construction on small site, increased area of interior & exterior envelop and neighbors’ complaints within dense urban fabric are downsides of the developing this type of vertical house. Nonetheless, recently this vertical house is at the fore among the people who had grown up at the flats in 80s/ 90s and look for their living values in diverse spatial qualities which cannot be achieved from the flats.Save this picture!© Bae JihunThe project proposes to collect vertical lives in a single family house beyond the just investment value. The house is for five family members; husband, wife and three kids. It has a studio for husband’s hobby, furniture making, and a multi-play room for 10, 8, and 6 years-old girls. Within the maximized volume formed by the regulations of setbacks and the parking, required programs are laid out in vertical zonings. The multi-room for three girls is located in first floor with the expanded north deck for them to spend time together between school and after-school-activities. The furniture making studio is placed at the south street side, adjacent to parking so that makes the husband easy to frequent in & out and commutes. The space for family gathering such as living room, kitchen, and dining is on the second floor. A master bedroom and the youngest girl’s room are on the third floor with mini library/ closet. The oldest girl’s room is on the fifth floor with great view, and the fourth floor works as second gathering space with terrace, a bed room and a bath room. Instead of big and wide openings for view, skinny windows are placed for both lighting and privacy from the adjacent buildings. The brick screen applied on most of openings except South.Save this picture!© Bae JihunSave this picture!Diagram 01Save this picture!© Bae JihunThe stepped mass over 9 meters by the daylight setback regulation and the cantilever over the parking becomes a typical building shape in residential zoning area in this city. The five-story house seeks small tweaks by ‘arcing’ on major elements that define the building. The ‘arc’ from the cantilever at the parking, the sloped wall at 4th floor expanded to an entry and the openings on elevations, reveal its identity of the vertical single-family house and express its unique appearance.Save this picture!© Bae JihunSave this picture!Diagram 02Save this picture!© Bae JihunProject gallerySee allShow lessUpcycling Hostel / Kinzo Architekten GmbH + Holzer Kobler ArchitekturenSelected ProjectsEtania Green School / billionBricksSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Bae Jihun Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Save this picture!© Bae Jihun+ 38Curated by María Francisca González Sharecenter_img Area:  175 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Photographs 2018 Year:  Five Story House / stpmj CopyAbout this officestpmjOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsBuildingsResidentialOn InstagramGangseo-guSouth KoreaPublished on January 03, 2019Cite: “Five Story House / stpmj” 02 Jan 2019.

Message on the declining health of people’s lawyer Lynne Stewart

first_imgLynne StewartEditor’s note: The following message from progressive journalist and activist Bob Lederer was made public on March 4 regarding the health of Lynne Stewart, the beloved people’s lawyer and former political prisoner. Ralph Poynter [Stewart’s spouse] told me the following very sad news last night, and has authorized me to distribute it publicly:Our beloved People’s Champion (and WBAI Local Station Board member) Lynne Stewart suffered a major stroke last Wednesday [March 1], the latest complication from the cancer that has now spread throughout her body and invaded her brain. She is resting comfortably at home and is not in pain, but can only speak sporadically. Her doctor has said she does not have much time left.Ralph and Sister Betty Davis are … taking good care of her, as are her doctor-daughter Zenobia Brown and long-term friend of 63 years, Virginia Gernes. … Because of the high expense of Lynne’s ongoing care, Betty has launched an online fundraising campaign. Please donate generously.I learned all this minutes after Ralph accepted an award for Lynne at a major public event by the Malcolm X Commemoration Committee, which honored a large group of lawyers and doctors who have supported U.S. political prisoners. As we know, for years Lynne went out of her way to provide strong representation to a pantheon of dedicated radical activists facing prison — before she herself suffered a similar, cruel fate.Let’s all send Lynne, Ralph and Betty our hugs, love and best wishes for this final journey. Such a heroic fighter — Lynne, we love you!P.S. Ironically, her latest stroke occurred hours after a New York Times article appeared based on an interview with her, which noted that she had survived three years beyond the compassionate release granted her (on Dec. 31, 2013) following a statement by her prison doctor that she would not likely survive beyond 18 months.Ms. Stewart said in a 12-page handwritten letter to the judge in 2013: “Isolated, in hospital, as I now am, I have time to contemplate life and death. I do not intend to go ‘gently into that good night,’ as Dylan Thomas wrote. There is much to be done in this world. I do know that I do not want to die here in prison — a strange and loveless place. I want to be where all is familiar — in a word, home.”This is a fitting reminder of that people’s victory three years ago, brought about by Lynne’s will of steel, Ralph’s indefatigable barnstorming and the movement’s rallying behind her.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

From Agave Plant to Your Palate

first_img Subscribe El Portal’s Annual Tequila Tasting 2013One of the best things to look forward to in El Portal’s Annual Tequila Tasting 2013 is the chance to try out premium tequilas. One of these is Tequila Semental.Founded in 2006, Tequila Semental is privately owned by Efrain Lopez Gurza, according to Rwandy Valdovinos of Tequila Semental, and “we have approximately 4,000 acres of prime agave fields in the low lands of Jalisco, in the town of Amatitan. The distillery is Hacienda De Oro, NOM 1522.Just recently, the company created its own importing company called Agavemex Importers, LLC. From the agave fields to your palate, Valdovinos says, “we’re a one-stop shop. We own our own agave, produce from our own distillery, and we now own our very own importing company. That all just translates to top quality. No intermediaries.”All the agave used is selected by age, color, and weight by Semental’s master distiller. Valdovinos says, “His name is Valente Ariano and he has been in the business for over 40 years. He’s the master distiller and has created a handful of brands that you’ve probably heard of or you probably drank at one point. He’s the Mick Jagger of the distilling world, he’s a rock star.”About 40 to 60% of the agave that is annually produced is used, and Valdovinos says that the company is “very exclusive about the agave that we process for our own tequila. Everything else gets sold to other distilleries or other producers in the region, but we hand-pick, we cherry-pick, the best agave for ourselves based on weight, color and age. All of our agave is aged seven years. It’s all matured blue agave.”Improving the quality even further, Valdovinos tells us, “We do triple distilling via state of the art autoclave process, thus better controlling temperature. You have to have prime agave, a prime product to be at prime production, to be able to realistically and successfully create premium tequila that is triple distilled. There’s a select few that triple distill and can actually maintain that supreme level of quality. It’s a true hold of premium tequila.”Even the barrels used to age the tequilas are taken into serious consideration to maintain Semental’s mark of quality.“We process using new barrels. We don’t use old whiskey or old brandy barrels, which is pretty much the norm in Tequila industry. We actually use new barrels. We [use] American Oak Barrels, brand new barrels, for our Reposado which we age for five months,” says Valdovinos.“For our Anejo, we utilize a hybrid barrel which uses American oak staves and French Limousin caps. Brand new barrels, we’re talking about $800 barrels that are only used once. We age our Anejos for 13 months. After that’s done, that barrel is sold to other tequila producers ” adds Valdovinos.According to Valdovinos, Reposado barrels are used three times where “after the first barreling, we actually disassemble each barrel, we shave them on the inside, we reassemble, we re-toast, and then we fill it with product. After three uses, our Reposado barrels [are] sold.”“We don’t cut corners. We produce top-notch tequila,” he says.After hearing the process each Tequila Semental goes through, it’s no wonder why the company has been recipients of multiple awards. Valdovinos tells us, “for the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, our Reposado took a double gold. Our Anejo took a gold and our Silver took silver [at the] San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2007.”Valdovinos continues, “as it relates to the BTI, Beverage Tasting Institute, we already have 94 points on our Semental Anejo, which is great. It’s awesome. Our Reposado took 93 points as well with the BTI. Our Semental Silver took 91 points, all exceptional points and quality.”Tequila Semental and El Portal has been in a working relationship now for the past year and a half, with El Portal supporting Tequila Semental brands while “we participate in the free tasting events there. We’ve done showcases there. We’ve done drink promos there and we very much enjoy their tequila tasting,” says Valdovinos.Come to the El Portal Tequila Tasting event on Thursday, September 12 at El Portal to taste the Semental difference.The event will start from 5:30 pm onwards and will also feature mariachis, hors d’oeuvre, and raffles. Entrance at the door will be $35, while advanced buyers up to September 11 can purchase tickets for $30.For reservations, call (626) 795-8553. El Portal is located at 695 E.

Do Demographics Play a Role in the Current Homeownership Rates?

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago After half a decade from the bottom of the housing bust, the U.S. homeownership rate still remains stuck at a current 50-year low. According to a recent report from Zillow, some attribute the low homeownership rate to more Americans delaying major life decisions that typically precede buying a home, like getting married and starting families. Still others blame rising rents and home values for making it difficult to save enough to buy a home. Zillow’s report takes a look at the demographics of those Americans that do own homes today, and those that do not, and compares the data to that of past decades.Age for Homeownership:Zillow reports that as the adult population ages longer, so do renters and homeowners. Renters in the United States in particular have steadily gotten older, and this could suggest that more Americans who turned to renting when first starting out are staying renters longer, either because of financial constraints or simply lifestyle choices that preclude the need to own a home.For typical age of a homeowner, however, Zillow reports that it stayed constant around 50 or 51 right up until the peak of the housing bubble in 2006, when the age of a typical homeowner started rising rapidly. The report shows that throughout the housing bust and subsequent recovery, those Americans that have been the most successful in buying or holding onto a home have largely been older.Zillow does note though, that at roughly the same time in 2005-2006, a notable drop in the homeownership rate among 25-to-44-year-olds began to take hold, which has continued into today. It is likely the younger members of this age group, just entering early adulthood, were naturally inclined to rent while their older peers, may have entered the housing market in the early years of the housing boom only to fall into foreclosure in later years and turn to renting as the housing bubble burst.Because this age group has been renting homes in greater numbers over the past decade, Zillow states that they have subjected themselves to both rising rents and rising home values that makes achieving homeownership more difficult. Rent values never really fell during the recession and instead have kept climbing steadily higher for years. Because of this increase in money spent on rent, less money is saved for a down payment on a future home purchase.Additionally, Zillow says this this speaks nothing to the fact that many previously foreclosed-upon homeowners are legally prohibited from purchasing a home for up to seven years after foreclosure, even if they could afford to buy another home today. This potentially locks them out of the market for years to come.Racial and Ethnic Composition in Homeownership:Despite the fact that the homeowner population has aged, the report notes that the population’s racial and ethnic composition has not changed much. According to Zillow, there is a striking gap in homeownership between whites and other races and ethnicities. The research shows that the gap is largest for blacks and Hispanics, who traditionally have had the lowest homeownership rates.While members of all racial and ethnic groups have struggled to some extent to regain a foothold in the housing market after the recession, the homeownership rate for both groups is lower today than in 2006, but the Hispanic homeownership rate is higher than it was two decades ago while the current black homeownership rate is slightly lower.Zillow states that evolving demographics can be useful in illustrating and explaining some of the changes seen in homeownership in the decade since the housing bust began. Younger adults and minorities have statistically been more inclined to rent instead of own, but it remains unclear if this is due to the fact that they prefer renting or they can’t attain homeownership. Additionally, Zillow says that while some individuals were able to break out of the rental market and buy a home during the bubble, many were subsequently foreclosed upon, and in turn, forced to re-enter the rental market.
