Sustainability and organic farming aren't words you'd typically hear in a theology class, but that's why Methodist Theological School in Ohio is different. At Seminary Hill Farm, a new vocabulary reflects a shift in culture: that our life's work requires a commitment to preserving, nurturing and generously sharing the earth's gifts that are given to us.
What does this look like? At MTSO, it comes in the form of an organic farm that sits on the campus's 80 acres, complete with open fields and hoophouses that extend the planting and harvesting seasons. The school also offers graduate-level coursework in sustainability, ecology and serves as a lab where students who will go on to serve churches and other organizations can practice what it means to live sustainably every day.
