Eco-Justice Conversation: Prisons & Gardening THIS Wednesday

Dear Beloved Eco-Stewards Community,
We pray that you are well during this difficult summer. And we invite you to join us for an upcoming eco-justice learning opportunity this Wednesday night on Zoom.

On Wednesday, August 26 at 7-8pm EST // 4pm-5pm PST, Eco-Stewards will be hosting a conversation with Steven Medina and Katerina Friesen of the Insight Garden Program (IGP), a California-based justice organization that transforms prisoners’ lives through connection to nature.“IGP’s mission is to facilitate an innovative curriculum combined with vocational gardening and landscaping training so that people in prison can reconnect to self, community, and the natural world. This “inner” and “outer” gardening approach transforms lives, ends ongoing cycles of incarceration, and creates safer communities.” This model is a real solution to some of the most pressing issues impacting prisoners and people in reentry. For more info check out IGP’s website.

This special event continues The Eco-Stewards Program’s Wednesday night Connect & Reflect zoom community calls started this spring as a response to the coronavirus pandemic and the postponement of our 2020 Eco-Stewards California Climate Justice Pilgrimage.
To join the call and receive the Zoom information, please RSVP for this free event by filling out the RSVP form here.

Sincerely,
The Eco-Stewards Leadership Team
Rev. Rob Mark, Vickie Machado, Kristen Young, Kathleen Murphy, Becky Evans, Bolton Kirchner
