Darby Pethrick

Hello, My name is Darby! I am studying Environment, Economy, Development, and Sustainability with a specialization in Community Development at The Ohio State University. I wrote this chapter in the fall semester of my second year while taking the ‘Religion and Environmental Values in America’ course. My environmental passions are rooted in the urgent need for environmental justice, regenerative solutions to food insecurity, and community development. I believe that a sustainable approach, one that prioritizes the value of community, is crucial for the creation and application of successful solutions to these problems. My classwork in community development, paired with my personal environmental passions, inspired my chapter on the essential presence of faith-based organizations in sustainable community development.
