Rev. John Creasy<a is the Associate Pastor at The Open Door Church, a missional church community that worships at the Union Project in Highland Park. It was John who pushed to get the church involved in urban farming as a form of missional engagement in the Garfield community. John has loved the steep learning curve of becoming an urban farmer, using permaculture design, and learning to engage the community.
