For over a year, I've been working with an initiative here in Quebec City which aims to provide earth stewardship resources to Anglican churches across the province. Perhaps you remember the post from about a year ago, about Aldo the donkey. Well, since doing the articles and calendar, I've helped set up their website and plan an urban raised-bed garden which was installed this summer at the Anglican Cathedral in Quebec City.
Thanks in large part to Aldo the donkey, our initiative has also helped the cathedral go through a green audit process, and has developed incredible and unexpected relationships with folks in the neighborhood, including a local school and a women's shelter and the projects have garnered lots of media attention. We've secured a couple of small grants, that made the garden project possible, and are in the process of growing the initiative to offer resources across the province.
The sales from the 2014 Aldo calendar will directly support Green Ministries efforts, including providing suggestions for how to "green" a church's hospitality (re-usable coffee cups, locally-sources treats, etc.), liturgy (locally made bread and wine, etc.), and more. The potential for faith communities to have positive influence on community sustainability is difficult to overstate, and I have thoroughly enjoyed contributing to these projects.
Thanks in advance for your interest and support!
