Join a “green” effort for the Greensboro Community
Are you interesting in “Green” issues for the greater Greensboro Community? The Greensboro UCC has recently started a “Green Group” whose membership is open to the community. The overall purpose is to define ways to foster better environmental awareness, and decide on appropriate next-steps, as well as urging users of the church to do so in the most environment-honoring way possible. Potential projects include not only more efficient energy use, recycling and composting….but also some initial discussion of longer-term and larger-scale projects, that could include a possible town-wide solar project.
The next meeting is May 10, 2014 from 10 am to 12 in the church’s Library Room (nearest the road)
Pastor Anthony Acheson writes “Have you ever come to an event at Greensboro Church? That is likely, because this building is the most widely used space for community events in our area. Other than Sunday morning, our building is used for non-church groups far more than for church events. Because we want everyone who uses this building to follow green practices, there is a way in which this work belongs to the whole community, not just the church’s membership. As a result, whatever green steps we take have great educational potential for the whole area.”
