InterPACK is the Pennsylvania District’s annual fall conference. Members from around Pennsylvania gather in the woods for a casual weekend of service, fellowship, and fun. This year we were in Duncansville, PA near Altoona from October 27-29, 2023. We spent the weekend at the Laurel Lodge. Attendees participated in a service project at the t. Vincent de Paul Monastery Community Gardens in Hollidaysburg. You can read about the gardens below. We also had fun workshops plus lots of food! We hope to see you next year!
The St. Vincent de Paul Monastery Community Gardens are in Hollidaysburg, PA. Their goal is to provide locally grown produce to minimise food insecurity in the Southern Alleghenies region. They also want to cultivate community through hospitality in gardening events, cultivate environmental awareness, and practice regenerative land practices. You can go to their website here to learn more about the gardens and monastery.
