Launched by Rev. Dr. Heber M. Brown, III in 2015, the Black Church Food Security Network "combats food insecurity by helping historic African American congregations establish or expand gardens on church-owned land. The network also links black churches and black farmers in the mid-Atlantic region to create a community-controlled, alternative food system based on self-sufficiency and black food and land sovereignty." https://thethread.ptsem.edu/heber-brown-iii
The Thread is a hub for the extended learning community of Princeton Theological Seminary. Developed by the Office of Continuing Education, the array of digital media and resources educate, equip, and inspire theologically curious Christian leaders.

"The Farminary is a place where theological education is integrated with small-scale regenerative agriculture to train faith leaders who are conversant in the areas of ecology, sustainability, and food justice. It is designed to train students to challenge society’s 24–7 culture of productivity by following a different rhythm, one that is governed by the seasons and Sabbath."
"According to the First Nations Development Institute, food sovereignty is defined as 'the inherent right of a community to identify their own food system.' This means that as a community we have the power to choose the food on our table." Valerie Segrest (Muckleshoot) director of the Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty Project, NMAI Interview, August 2016
