The JPII Catholic Worker Farm is headed by the Maurin Academy’s Spencer Hess and Emily Larner. It holds a special place in the Maurin Academy’s framework. It operates in the spirit of Peter Maurin’s “agronomic universities,” as a place where people can learn both to become more independent through work and community, and learn from each other through the opportunities afforded by the Maurin Academy and the on-the-ground activities of friends and neighbors in Kansas City, MO.
NOT in mine own, but in my neighbor’s face,
Nor he in his, but in the light of mine,
Behold thy Face Divine.
–John B. Tabb
