10/10/10 – A Global Work Party day organized by 350.org. For those who haven’t heard of 350.org here’s an overview:
350.org is an international campaign that’s building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis-the solutions that science and justice demand.
Our mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis-to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet.
This great organization, headed by writer and activist Bill McKibbon, has been spending months encouraging individuals, groups and organizations to create work parties in their own communities focusing on ways to lighten their footprint while putting pressure on local, state, national and international leader to take climate change seriously.
Interested in learning more? There are over 7300 events registered to be taking place today all over the world. 350.org website has tons of information.
At Pinehurst Inn in Bayfield, we consider every day a work day, but today, there will be time spent both making more biodiesel and getting into the native gardens. Baby steps, but very real in our world.
