Be a Part of Change You Can See!

Want to know how you can get involved in the local, healthy food movement in response to global climate change?  Want to enjoy one of our great potluck lunches?  What to learn more about the Earth’s most valuable and under-appreciated resource?  Then come to the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula on Saturday, May 3rd and you can do just that!

Interfaith Power and LightBased on the Interfaith Power and Light resource, “Sow a Cool Harvest”, our Multigenerational Earth Day Project is a fun program for all ages that runs from 10am until 2pm and includes lunch and a movie!

Sow a Cool HarvestIn the morning (10am until noon), you’ll have a chance to visit various stations on a variety of topics: local plants; raised-bed gardening; composting and worm composting; beneficial insects; and more. Many thanks to Navigators USA, Chapter 58 and other dedicated volunteers for running these stations!

At noon we’ll begin our potluck lunch — please sign up here to let us know what you plan to bring — and we’ll continue learning about the wonder beneath our feet with Dirt! The Movie.

Dirt! The MovieDirt! takes a humorous and substantial look into the history and current state of the living organic matter from which we come and to which we shall return. It tells the story of Earth’s fertility — from its miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation, from the emerging appreciation of its beauty, power and wisdom to the mutually beneficial relationship we can have with soil.

We’ll wrap up our day (by 2pm) with a discussion of the movie and letters asking our legislators to promote sustainable farming, healthy food and good stewardship of the natural world on which we all depend.

Green SanctuaryIf you’re on Facebook, you can let us know you’re attending here and you can also contact Andrew or Joanne with questions.  Our thanks go to the UUFP’s Green Sanctuary Committee for their support of this Multigenerational Earth Day Project!

See you on May 3rd for a fun day of gardening, food and dirt!
