This Day in Bonaventure History
April 8, 2001
The Canticle Farm in Allegany, N.Y. was started on this day by community members and Franciscan Sisters.
The mission of the non-profit organization is to protect and honor the sacredness of God’s creation. It is committed to connect all peoples, to practice Earth-friendly habits and to realize a Creation-centered spirituality. The ministry is still sponsored by the Sisters and is supported by the community.
The farm is able to provide naturally grown produce and sell at a reasonable price. It is very popular in the Olean area.
