Growing Good: A Beginner's Guide to Cultivating Caring Communities

Friday, November 5, 2021 at 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm
Virtual Zoom link: https://usi.zoom.us/s/99046403232

A discussion with author, Dr. Bill Hemminger

Join us for a discussion with author Dr Bill Hemminger on his book Growing Good: A Beginner's Guide to Cultivating Caring Communities. Centered mostly in the Midwest, this collection of essays brings together the stories of normal people who have rolled up their sleeves to make their community a better place by serving nonprofits such as Gleaner Food Bank in Indianapolis, Indiana; Migration and Refugee Services in Louisville, Kentucky; and Patchwork Central in Evansville, Indiana, along with national organizations like CASA. For instance, a teacher and his student started a native plant garden to help local insects thrive in a disused corner of their school property. A woman saw a billboard and was moved to become a voice for children in need. A professional photographer offered his services to people experiencing homelessness in order to help others witness their humanity. Editor Bill Hemminger also writes of his own extensive experience with community gardening to feed hungry neighbors.
