The story of how a priest in a tiny hamlet in Romania was struck by a revelation when he went to the supermarket.
“One day, I went to the supermarket and saw that we import parsley from Italy…
....How can we be so blind? Are we unable to grow our own parsley?”
“We’re growing vegetables free of chemicals, with environmentally friendly technologies, so we can offer our neighbours and fellow villagers a quality product, free of any chemicals. I studied theology at the university. In school I learnt that we must do good by our fellow human beings. We think that producing good food is, in a way, the equivalent of that.”
