EarthCare will hold its annual Spring Retreat this Saturday, at the Pot Point Cabin in the beautiful Tennessee River Gorge. Dr. Carol Landis will present "Green Audits for Households and Houses of Worship".
In 2009, Carol immigrated to TN from OH, where she was active with Ohio's chapter of the national program "Interfaith Power & Light." While there, she helped facilitate an outreach effort that invited faith groups to conduct energy audits, as a modification of Interfaith Power & Light's "Cool Congregations" project. The project was very successful, resulting in over 500 congregations and 3,000 households in Ohio conducting energy audits. She now serves on the TN-IPL Steering Committee, and actively seeks to engage other people of faith and their faith communities to model the shared values of Earth stewardship and eco-justice. Green Interfaith Network, Inc. (GINI) is the local TN-IPL affiliate serving NE Tennessee and SW Virginia.
If weather permits, there will also be a short nature hike. A free lunch will be provided, so please register at www.earthcareonline.org.
