Spring Blessing of the Fields is on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 6:00 pm at Balsam Hill Farm

On Sunday, May 7 at 6:00pm, the greater Sheffield community and its farming neighbors are invited to gather in the west facing field behind Balsam Hill Farm, 226 Hewins Street, Sheffield, for a brief time of celebrating the land, uniting in an inclusive liturgy to bless the fertile fields that extend throughout our beloved town, and then conclude by sharing a light outdoor meal.
