EarthKeepers II Student Team covered by TV-6 news – with their presentation on the 30 community church gardens with Focus on Native Species Plants and Local Veggies.
The group is called EarthKeepers II and on Sunday they met with members of Messiah Lutheran Church in Marquette. Earth Keepers goal is to have 30 church gardens within the next two years.
Once the gardens are in place, churches can share their resources, provide workshops, and become more environmentally conscious.
“We’d like to present a culture within the worship community of not just being in the church buildings but getting out into creation and being good stewards of the earth,” said Kyra Zimokowski, project coordinator.
Earth Keepers II is sponsored by 10 faith traditions: Roman Catholic, Episcopal, Jewish, Lutheran, Presbyterian, United Methodist, Bahá’í, Unitarian Universalist, Zen Buddhist.
The group is also giving churches and temples free energy audits.
If your church is interested, all it has to do is sign up.
