"Farmer To Farmer Senegal Partnership"
With Nancy Scott
Our very own Master Gardener Nancy Scott will talk about her experiences this past fall in Senegal. Farmer to Farmer (F2F) is funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), connecting specialized volunteers with farmers, cooperatives, and other agencies. Volunteers provide technical assistance on practical interventions that increase food production and income, build local capacity, and conserve natural resources with partners. They also build meaningful relationships, fostering mutual understanding and respect.

By “Cultivating Love” by Rev. Shari Woodbury
Albert Einstein observed: “There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others... This universal force is LOVE.” Our Unitarian and Universalist ancestors, like those of many faith traditions, cultivated this powerful force of love within themselves. How can we today harness it for healing – both within and beyond ourselves? Come, fill yourself with love and song. Featuring the Off Beats.
It is appropriate to acknowledge that the First Unitarian Church of Omaha occupies the traditional treaty lands of the Omaha and Otoe-Missouria Tribal Nations whose sovereignty existed long before the state of Nebraska. We would also like to express our respect to the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska, the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, the Santee Sioux Tribe of Nebraska, and over 170 other tribes represented within the Omaha area.
