One example of how a business can support Laudato Si’ in their community is by partnering with local parishes or nonprofits. A low-income senior living community in Illinois had a community garden built at one of their Catholic Charities shelters through an effort from the
Office for Human Dignity’s Laudato Si' Ministries at the Diocese of Joliet. While they were building it many of the residents stopped by to check it out and were excited about it. A summer intern is now in charge of tending to the garden, while working with the elderly residents who are also helping tend it. They had a great group of volunteers (mostly young adults) who helped build it.
