Washington rooftop garden helps feed hungry mouths and minds

Children in Everett, Wash., won't have "nature-deficit" (see "The Nature Principle") thanks to a rooftop garden on the garage at Trinity Lutheran College (formerly the Issaquah, Wash.-based Lutheran Bible Institute).

The garden took root thanks to a $6,000 grant from ELCA World Hunger and a $5,000 grant from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, said Trinity professor David R. Ellingson, an ELCA pastor (above). With an additional $12,000 grant from Wheat Ridge Ministries, Trinity is getting rooftop produce "into the hands of people who need food," he said.
