Marching Toward Earth Justice: Help Stony Point Center tend the movement for Earth Care and Global Justice

Last weekend, a dozen members of the Community of Living Traditions and the “Farm the Land, Grow the Spirit” Summer Institute attended the “March for a Clean Energy Revolution” in Philadelphia. Accompanied by our allies in the Peace & Climate Change Contingent, the Ramapough Lunaape Nation, WESPAC, and many others, we announced to the delegates assembled for the Democratic National Convention that action on climate change must be prioritized by all our political leaders.

“Praying with our feet” is just one of the ways that Stony Point Center engages in and builds the movement for earth justice. From working with the victims of Superstorm Sandy who still have not received a just and safe resettlement, to teaching students and young adults about farming and food justice; from searching constantly for new ways to forage and glean food and raw materials from our land, to educating tens of thousands of guests each year about the finer points of composting — Stony Point Center and the Community of Living Traditions are on a continuing quest to deepen and strengthen the roots of a new relationship with the earth.

We need your help in this project! Help SPC “root for earth justice” by attending or supporting our third annual Farm-to-Table Gala, which will take place on September 18 from 4-7pm. Tickets are $100 each, and all proceeds go to support the sustainable development of this conference center as a center for innovative community building and organizing. Buy your tickets online at stonypointcenter.org/gala.

Your business or organization can also support the gala by becoming a sponsor — see options at stonypointcenter.org/gala-sponsor and contact us at gala@stonypointcenter.org if you have questions.

Hope to see you on the farm, in the streets, and at the table on September 18th!
