"Last summer , 32 downtown Winnipeg kids learned how to cultivate the earth. They used creation-centred biblical principles set out at a day camp run by St. Margaret's Anglican Church and A Rocha (The Rock) -- a Christian conservation and environmental group founded in Portugal three decades ago by a husband-and-wife team of Anglican priests. A Rocha Canada is based in coastal Surrey, B.C., and has a conservation site in the Pembina Valley, but its Winnipeg gardening mission, 'Just Growing' is rooted firmly on some of the needier streets of the city's downtown core. 'Our project here links people with food, community and creation', says Jennifer Kornelsen, a community organizer with A Rocha Canada and one of Just Growing's co-ordinators".
The Advent 1996 issue of the International Anglican Family Network "tells of just a few of the projects, linked with churches, which are trying to alleviate the suffering and halt the spread of the disease. In this terrible situation there are signs of hope." Article includes reports from 12 different countries.
