Many Indianapolis area congregations put their faith into action to make their facilities more eco-friendly. At the September 30 workshop, Green Stories, participants will hear about the ventures of these congregations and see their work in action.
Held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis (UUI), this half day event focuses on a handful of congregations and their effective greening practices. Featured are stories about an energy audit, native plant landscaping, certified native wildlife habitat, community gardening, composting and educational programming. In addition, leaders at UUI offer an inside look into how they created a congregational-wide emphasis on caring for the earth – from using denominational resources to involving key church leaders. Participants will receive a tour of UUI’s building and grounds, highlighting their green efforts.
Green Stories is 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday, September 30, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis, 615 W. 43rd St. The cost is $15 a person (or $10 a person for groups of three or more). This includes lunch and a free copy of the book EcoFaith: Creating and Sustaining Green Congregations by Charlene Hosenfield.
Events are limited to Indiana congregations.
