Join us Friday night and all day Saturday as we explore discipleship in our watershed. Reflect on Scripture with us, get your hands dirty as we work to restore this place, and consider the links between discipleship and life in your home watershed. The weekend will be led by Matt Humphrey. An educator and practitioner with A Rocha Canada, Matt has taken his latest publication Reinhabiting Place: The Work of Bioregional Discipleship to numerous conferences & gatherings. Much of the weekend’s discussion will focus on ideas outlined in the article.

All admissions include Friday night snack & Saturday breakfast, lunch and snacks.
