The launch of FoodFaith's Planting Seeds garden on March 9th was a resounding success, attracting over 80 people from Indigenous, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu and other cultural and religious backgrounds.
The Circle of Unity procession of faith and cultural groups around the Indigenous dancers and the communal pesto making provided opportunities for everyone to share stories and inspiration.
Representatives from various groups attended the launch, including Catholic Earthcare, the Australian National Imams Council, Uniting Earthweb, the Buddhist Council of NSW, The NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, the Hindu Council of Australia, the Columban Mission Institute and Tzu Chi Buddhists. Companies and organizations who have contributed valuable assistance to FoodFaith were also represented. These include Lane Cove Council, Mirvac, Glascott Landscape & Civil, K&L Gates and Deloitte.
