New Hope Catholic Worker Farm

Oh hi everybody! It has been a while since I have made a post, and we have sunny California to thank for my return! The time has come to revisit some footage from the summer that hasn’t found it’s way to z blog.

We took a trip to the New Hope Catholic Worker Farm back in August, at the suggestion of my sister Laura, who has been friends with one of its members for years.

As borrowed from Catholic Worker website:

The New Hope Catholic Worker Farm was started in 2001. We are on 33 acres in a beautiful valley just south of Dubuque, Iowa. We have a half acre in vegetables and fruits, a milking cow, a flock of chickens and turkeys, as well as bees. We are interested in pursuing the ideal of the “worker-scholar” that Peter Maurin discussed. We host periodic school sessions for those seeking alternative education in a farm context. Please contact us if you would like to be notified of such events.
