Dear Eco-Stewards Community,
A year ago, we were gathered on the welcoming island of Oahu, Hawai’i exploring ancient fishponds and taro fields and building new relationships between young adults and their mentors who care deeply about the intersection between faith and environmental stewardship. Some of our time together was spent envisioning the future of Eco-Stewards and our program offerings. This June, our leadership team will continue that important work as we return to Richmond, VA– the site of our 2017 Journeying Toward Justice on the James River Program.
We’ll be hosting an afternoon “Return to Richmond Gathering” for Alumni, Networkers, and Future Eco-Stewards/Inquirers on Saturday, June 29 at the beautiful Richmond Hill community in Richmond, VA. We invite you to join us as we share, connect, reflect and vision together (light refreshments will be served). And please spread the word, if you know any young adult leaders in Virginia or neighboring states (think West Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Washington, D.C., Kentucky, Tennessee) who would benefit from participating in a future Eco-Stewards Program. This is a great chance for us to meet them in person and share a taste of the Eco-Stewards experience and community. More details in the poster below. And you can RSVP to the event here.
