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.
