Change for the World…April, May, June – LEAF

LEAF – Leadership, Education And Farming – cultivates South Central PA youth leaders, from diverse backgrounds, through meaningful work in the food system. Youth 14-17 may apply for a 7-week summer paid work program on a small Landisburg-area farm. They learn how to raise crops and prepare food while building their own leadership skills. The farm includes sustainably managed vegetable gardens with 40 varieties of crops, a commercial teaching kitchen, a greenhouse and propagation house, and classroom space. LEAF has a growing-season farm share program with some donated to families in need. In 2021 92% of first years said they had grown in communicating with people from different backgrounds and 77% advanced to the school year program with higher levels of responsibility.

Calling UUCV Artists, Poets, Writers, Musicians

Our June 12th worship is going to be a “Worship Through the Arts” service. We used to have an annual poetry service at UUCV. This one will build on that tradition and expand to include prose, fine arts (painting, sculpture), music, dance, etc.

If you have something to offer, please contact Dot Everhart at 717-991-3539 or We’ll be focusing on the fourth principle of “a free an responsible search for truth and meaning.” Works that reflect that search will be given priority. If you prefer not to speak about your art, you may display it in social hall on that day. Looking forward to showcasing our multi-talented congregation!
