Be the Change Community Action: Climate Change: What's Being Done, What You Can Do

Be the Change LogoCLIMATE CHANGE: WHAT’S BEING DONE, WHAT YOU CAN DO

Join us for a discussion on climate change. We will discuss how people around the world, in small and larger ways, are taking excess carbon out of the sky and putting it back in the soil - healing our pasture and farm lands, enhancing water storage, and growing healthy food. We will explain how water helps cool the earth and what is being done to restore local water cycles. We’ll end with a series of suggestions for actions you can take in your own yard or neighborhood. We are three educators fascinated by these possibilities. The more we read, the more we feel hopeful about these approaches and we believe you will too. 

 

McNamara Buck is a recently retired pre-school teacher who is working on educating others on ecological restoration and its relationship to carbon sequestration.

 

Claryce Evans, a retired teacher and director of school reform efforts, and a life-long political activist, is a founder of a small local climate change group and board chairperson of a school reform non-profit. 

 

Helen Snively has been composting and gardening all her life; thanks to 20+ years of running plant swaps and learning from neighbors, she has many tips to share on climate-friendly gardening.

20% of sales from 3-5PM will be donated to the Northeast Organic Farming Association/Massachusetts Chapter, Inc.
