Social Justice News Your Social Justice Committee has sprung into spring! The big news is that our Waterwise Garden Project is launched! We were approved for funding through Cal Water in late February and the Board of Trustees approved our moving forward in early March. We have 90 days to complete the project, so in March we got busy on the first step of removing the sod in the church front yard. Thanks to Alan, Chris, Sue, Emily, Dick, Jeri, Benny, Cate, Rosemary, Steven and Margaux for their indispensable volunteer help in making this happen! Special thanks also to Roger Sitkin, a farmer in Bellota (whose mother was a supporter of our church), who agreed to take the sod we removed. This saved us from the cost of taking it to the landfill for disposal. In April, we'll be completing the irrigation system, converting our old sprinkler system to drip irrigation. Finally, in May we'll complete the project, planting about 150 waterwise plants and spreading bark for mulch. Lots of help will be needed during this process, so if you're interested in volunteering for a few hours, please contact Jeri Bigbee (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Welcome to summer from your Social Justice Committee We had a busy monthly parking lot event in June where we collected $57.00 in recyclables. We also hosted a garden workday to spruce up our waterwise garden. Join us again on Saturday, July 16th from 9:30 - 11:30 am for recycling, gardening and crafting! We'll also be collecting nonperishable food to be donated to the Emergency Food Bank.
On Sunday, June 19th we collected a shared offering of $219 to support the Ukranian emergency relief, through the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) (https://www.uusc.org/). Thank you for your support! After the service, we held our Waterwise Garden dedication. Rev. Bob provided inspiring words about how the garden symbolizes our 7th principle and our commitment to a sustainable world. We told the story of how our garden came to be and recognized our amazing crew of volunteers that made it all possible. If you'd like to join us helping the garden stay beautiful, please contact Jeri Bigbee at email@example.com.
Enjoy the summer and stay cool!
