The Edible Churchyard educates NYC communities about food justice, while facilitating the transformation of urban spaces into growing possibilities.

The Edible Churchyard is a program borne out of Union Theological Seminary’s (UTS) visionary recognition that ecological justice in an integral and inseparable aspect of social justice.  The Edible Churchyard is growing into an experiential, place-based learning laboratory.  As a program within UTS, we are in a unique position to train hundreds of future community leaders every year.   We are utilizing our growing spaces and edibles to engage the community about food, eating, and justice—and their theological implications.  Integral to our work is community engagement and education.
