About Us

Amirah and Will are farmers who grow food for the Stony Point Conference and Retreat Center in the lower Hudson River Valley. They are also both members of the Community of Living Traditions, a multifaith intentional community of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim people whose faith practices guide them to participate in movements for justice and peace. Faith in Farming is a podcast where we talk about our work with the land, our faith practices, and how it all comes together.
