Rev. Jenn Allen is the Diocesan Missioner of the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas. She oversees Bethany House and Garden, an innovative ministry “focused on going out into the neighborhood and meeting people where they are – physically and spiritually”.

One third of the produce from the culinary garden will be given to a neighboring church for their fruit and vegetable pantry, one third to a local culinary school and one third to neighbors.
