Sponsor a Retreat or Nature Outing

One of the best ways to talk about the power of nature and to be transformed into action is to experience the power and beauty of creation. Perhaps you can go to an urban garden or farm and let members of your community open their being to the sounds, sights, smells and feeling of nature. This can be time of silence, or learning, or prayerful reflection. You can choose to organize your own field trip or hike, or retreat, or connect with an existing organization, environmentalist or botanist.
