    A neighbor and I (and our spouses) have decided to involve our 2-block long neighborhood in some group actions. We’re starting by reading and learning more; then will choose a simple, attainable project; then will host a block party so that other neighbors can sign on to our project if they wish. I’m hoping for some suggestions from others that aren’t individual AND aren’t congregationally based. My spouse and I are UU, but no one else on our block is, and I don’t want to turn them off by bringing church into it even though I personally think it’s exactly where church DOES belong.

    My family is in the process of buying a house with land so we can raise our own sustainable food, create a permaculture garden that will restore the soil, help our children live closer to nature, and hopefully down the line use it as a space to teach/inspire others in our community.

    I drive a hybrid (Prius 2011), constantly reuse- around my house and give materials for repurposing to school art teachers, and recycle. Since I have owned my urban property, I have planted 3 trees and bushes for creatures and shade, for birds and am working on making my urban lot a treed lot. Coming soon is a red bud and a maple tree.

    I’m a member of my Earth Ministry Committee. My action is an idea I want to implement in our congregation. 1. I with EMcommitee want to encourage every member to read the month of readings I have just read. 2. I want to form small groups to make a group climate commitment and also to exchange experience and support members in the group as they progress and grow in their sustainable life style.
