THE WELL, an informal worshipping community in West Asheville, is excited to announce special guest speaker Mark Hare on Sunday, April 3 at 6pm.
Mark Hare works in Haiti with the Farmer’s Movement of Papaye. Thirty years ago, the FMP started out as a small farmer’s organization with a few members. Today it is a grassroots movement of thousands of community groups located throughout Haiti and includes 20 farming cooperatives. Using techniques he learned during six years of volunteer work in Nicaragua, Mark teaches diversification of farming and integration of animal production with vegetables and other crops. In a nation struggling for survival, Mark shares the good news of God’s abundance found in nature.
Mark received his BA from Warren Wilson, before going on to receive is Masters in forestry from Michigan State University. We are thrilled to welcome him back to the Asheville area to share the story of his ministry in Haiti.
THE WELL meets at 690 Haywood Rd, in the fellowship hall of West Asheville Presbyterian Church. for more information about THE WELL or about this special event, contact Bill Buchanan at email@example.com or call 828-231-4634.
