“Nature’s Best Hope” Book Discussion Group And Video to Watch Ahead Tuesday May 4, 7 pm
How can we tackle global warming? Easy — right in our own backyards!! Join the Homegrown National Park Movement. Let’s put the Meetinghouse (and maybe your own backyard) on the map! Laurel Green and Rev. Mellen Kennedy will facilitate a discussion about this groundbreaking (or maybe we should say ground-restoring) book focusing on how we can apply it to the Meetinghouse grounds and our own backyards. If you haven’t had the opportunity to read the book, you can still participate! You may wish to check out the video of one of author Doug Tallamy’s talks here: https://grownativemass.org/Great-Resources/experts-videos/Restoring-Natures-Relationships-at-Home It’s an amusing, enjoyable talk with fascinating information about, birds, caterpillars, butteries, trees and other plants.

We’ll follow up on the service the day before by Rev. Mira on the psychedelic renaissance. We’ll share our responses to her talk and watch a 15-minute video if there’s time. Rev. Mellen will facilitate the discussion. If You can’t make this session and would like to participate in this ongoing occasional discussion group, please contact Rev. Mellen at firstname.lastname@example.org
