As Unitarian Universalists, our seventh Principle calls us to care for our planet Earth and all living creatures (in children’s language.) Here’s an interfaith project you can help support with your children. I hope to see some of you there!
On Saturday the 14th from 3 to 5 pm, consider joining an event at the newly cleared project site to mix a LOT of compost into the soil. Right now we still need quite a few helpers for this part of the project. On Sunday the 29th from 3 to 5 pm we will be planting more than 200 different trees comprised of 20+ native species, many of them edible! We have more registrants for this date so far, but still need more helpers! Supplies and snacks will be provided for participants at both events.
People do need to register for these events. There are a couple of ways they can do this. From Facebook the links are www.facebook.com/events/163254650989082/ for the 14th and www.facebook.com/events/517090485338927/ for the 29th. From the Columbia Families in Nature website there is a sign up form – www.columbiafamiliesinnature.org/community-forest-project.html. I anticipate that most of the people you may invite to the event will not have participated in CFIN events before, in which case they will be prompted to complete the brief one-time registration/waiver form at www.surveymonkey.com/r/CFINpre-registration. It is through this form that I will have everyone’s email address so they can receive the email two days in advance of the event with details on where to park, how to come prepared, etc.
