It may be hard to give up a Sunday afternoon in May, but people of faith who care about the well-being of our earth and all who live here, are gathering at Temple B’rith Kodesh on May 7, 12:30 to 4:30 to be inspired, to learn new skills and information and have meaningful conversations with others.
We will all hear why faith matters in the fight against climate change, and learn how the new 30% rebate on energy upgrades for nonprofits like houses of worship can make new windows, heating and cooling systems, insulation and solar installations more affordable.
We’ll visit experts at their display tables, enjoy refreshments without creating any waste, renew old acquaintances and meet new people who care as much as we do, talk with electric car owners and maybe even squeeze in a walk on the Brickyard Trail.
Bring a group from your congregation so that you can choose different workshops and bring lots of valuable information back to your house of worship. Workshops include:
HeatSmart Monroe/FLX - an overview of becoming energy-efficient from audit to implementation along with incentives available through your utility, the state and federal government
Solar for houses of worship and homeowners
Engaging Youth and Families and Connecting with the wider Community
Food Waste and Composting service for your house of worship or home
Rethinking the American Lawn - a vision for landscaping that supports natural systems,
