Support a Just Transition to Climate-Friendly Agriculture

The deadline for this UUMFE- and UUSJ-sponsored letter writing campaign has been extended to May 10th. Our faith calls us to promote bold action in response to the worsening climate crisis and the glaring racial and socioeconomic inequities revealed by the pandemic. There is growing recognition that changes in our food systems can contribute to progress in fighting climate change. These changes, if done right, can also rectify injustices in our current agricultural systems. As UUs, we insist that the transition to more climate-friendly agriculture also responds to pressing social problems like land loss, racism, unemployment, and hunger. We are urging Senators to support legislation that would make progress on both climate change and social ills, such as the Justice for Black Farmers Act (recently introduced as S. 300) and the Climate Stewardship Act (just re-introduced as S.1072). Take 5 minutes and send your letter now!

Regenerative Gardening

After viewing the films, Kiss the Ground and 2040, I wondered if I could apply regenerative agriculture to my small backyard garden. I found a couple books to peruse but found I couldn't get myself to sit down and read them. Hence, this daily action. If you have a garden, lawn, or pots on the porch, maybe you would be interested in this action as well. DAILY ACTION: read a chapter from a book on regenerative gardening and/or tend your garden using these practices. Some links to books are provided, if you find others, your action is to post that in our team feed.

Regenerative Solutions to Climate Change

Watch the film 2040, a documentary that follows filmmaker, Damon Gameau as he travels the world seeking new approaches and innovations to combat the climate crisis. Concerned with his own daughter’s future, the film is a positive take at what the world could be like if we embrace more regenerative solutions to address the planet’s most pressing environmental issue.

    I love my daily walks even though they start on the busy Taylor Rd. Sharing the bike lane is sometimes challenging. Be nice to have space identified for both walkers and riders

    Just finished watching Kiss the Ground - very inspiring. I am going to have to figure out what to do with my pasture that is now not being used. Open to ideas.

    Got up early to check on my garden and spent some time pulling weeds before I got busy with scheduled activities. Very nice way to start the day.

    The forum was very interesting and so nice to reflect on progress for a moment. I appreciated that. There was a LOT of participation and great dialogue.  I learned that technology can solve a lot of technical problems but that our cultural changes are the biggest challenge and we as part of UUA are well positioned to lead with our values.
