Seed Packing at Willow Creek Community Church
On April 20th, at the end of an all-day firm retreat, firm members participated in Seed Packing at Willow Creek Community Church in Barrington. Seed packs are sent to families in developing countries around the world, with each seed pack supplying a single family with enough seeds to grow a garden capable of producing 1,000 pounds of food for the season, enough to provide a sustainable source of both food and income for their household. This year’s seeds are being sent to Africa. Our team packed 1,350 seed packs towards the church’s ultimate goal of 1,000,000 seeds, a goal which was reached Sunday evening with two hours of packing still to go.
