Praise the Lord and Green the Roof

Perhaps you won’t be surprised to hear about a religious order of nuns that grows its own vegetables and cares for the environment. But nuns sharing a Zip car? Nuns wearing organic cotton habits? And nuns living under a green roof in New York City?

Joseph Huff Hannon sent us this fascinating post about a group of green-living nuns who are serving their fellow humans and the planet by living Earth Wise, Money Smart.

The story first appeared January 31, 2009, in The New York Times on line, and in print February 1. If you haven’t yet read it, we think you’ll enjoy Praise the Lord and Green the Roof.
