White Violet Center for Eco-Justice
Teaching, caring, inspiring for all creation
White Violet Center for Eco-Justice at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, is a ministry of the Sisters of Providence. You’ll find a herd of alpacas and a flock of laying chickens, a 5-acre USDA certified organic garden, orchards, bee hives, a Farm Store, and a nature trail. We also have educational workshops, cooking classes, and opportunities for internships and volunteering. Schedule a tour of the farm.
This is a working farm! You can be a part of it!
In person or virtual. Engage with great faith thinkers from the 17th to the 20th centuries – Pascal, Kierkegaard, W. James, Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The seminar will focus on applying the ideas discussed to faith here and now, drawing on personal perspectives from the participants.
Farm to fork. Join us for Sunday Brunch in O’Shaughnessy Dining Room at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods for a delicious meal prepared by our new catering partner, Bon Appétit. Their philosophy is simple — cook from scratch using fresh, authentic, seasonal ingredients from local farms and artisans.
Calling all teens! Come share your time and talents with our retired Sisters of Providence at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.
