last Sunday thegreenrock.ca, with support from Memorial University, Department of Forestry and Agrifoods, and some really cool local businesses launched the How do You Fit in? initiative during the Earth Day Fair at the Suncor Fluvarium. It goes like this: the earth is one big beautiful interconnected system, and we all have a role to play in caring for it. When it comes to ‘thinking planet and living local’, we asked, “How do you fit in?”
and guests to the Fluvarium answered! the liked the sneak-peek preview of the Habits for Your Habitat ~ Guide to the Good site that we’ve been building on the past months; they lined up for the white spruce seedlings which we completely ran out of; they wanted to win the excellent “Living Local” draw with some of St. John’s finest – goodies from St. John’s Soap Works, a ‘Shop Local’ poster, a gift certificate from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, as well as locally made fire-weed jam from Casey’s Crafts. (congrats Nicole!)
But the biggest deal of the day was how people see themselves fitting in – and there are so many ways. Answers came in English, Spanish, Korean on paper, in voice, in video and in art. Turns out there is great love on for the earth, and once our voices join in unison we will do a better job of caring for our planet.
Let’s keep going! thegreenrock.ca is now moving into phase 2 which is the development of a creative ‘talking pictures’ and an some insight on living la vida local with Dr. Sean McGrath from For A New Earth. The responses we received were very inspiring ! We can’t wait to share it with you.
