UPDATE: This meeting is postponed until after the Lenten season. Keep an eye on this space for the new date.
Worship communities own significant land, and hold great potential for improving local ecology by implementing restoration best practices inspired by their traditions. MEEC is launching a new training process in land management for teams of 4-5 from area worship communities from any faith tradition or denomination. Drawing on our 25 years of practical restoration experience, we'll provide a combination of in person and remote learning, site visits and hands-on experiences that cover major topics in land management in an age of climate change, loss of biodiversity, and habitat degradation.
Teams that complete the approximately year-long process will have developed, with the guidance of MEEC staff, volunteers, and other program participants, an initial plan that meets their site needs, a one-time donation of plants from the Mount Saint John native plant nurseries and a handbook to guide further management.
This session will serve as an orientation for teams as well as an information session for those considering participation. We estimate the session will last about an hour, and an optional woodland hike will be offered after if weather allows.
