Food Waste

Many people are not well informed about food labels and how that contributes to food wastage. To learn the straight skinny, view this webinar on Labels, Food waste, and Climate change Food Waste

Books To Read

Our faith calls us to be caretakers of our planet, but what that means, what scripture says, and how we might put our faith into action is not often clear. The Earth Care Taks Force has two books to suggest, aiding those who wish to learn more. 

The first is Inhabiting Eden by Dr. Patricia Tull, Professor Emeritus at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. Dr. Tull links scripture supporting our response to modern ecological challenges and is a wonderful guide to personal reflection on environmental concerns. 

The second is Saving Us by Katharine Hayhoe, Professor of Climate Science at Texas Tech University and a devout Christian. Although urging us to talk to others about our changing climate is Dr. Hayhoe’s primary suggestion on how we individually can help, she suggests many actions that we can do with others both within and outside faith communities.

The Earth Care Task Force meets the second Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. by Zoom. Contact Curtis Baysinger at
