You may want to simply scan the News Letter to find an issue that most interests you. Remember a couple of years ago the Grey Nuns decided to make an impact investment in the Iroquois Valley Farmland REIT as one way to support environmental health and struggling farmers who are committed to healthy, humane and organic practices without GMOs, toxic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, synthetic fertilizers or other harmful chemicals. While Iroquois Valley is not specifically mentioned the importance of organic farming is.
A major take away from this newsletter is the interconnectedness of all things. I hope you find it a worthwhile read
