The Care of the Earth Committee encourages and facilitates Environmental Stewardship. Ongoing programs include waste reduction, recycling, composting, education, organic garden, and solar power. We support the House of Bishops' Genesis Covenant, an initiative by which the Episcopal Church has committed "to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from every facility it maintains by a minimum of 50% in ten years." We're beginning outreach via the DioCal Commission for the Environment and local environmental groups. We meet the second Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm in the Plaza Room.
