We are active members of the U.U. Church of Bowling Green and often lead in demonstrations of ecological land management on the church campus as a part of the Ecological Land Ministry. Anyone can come and join us for these demonstrations and work days. We will post opportunities for involvement on our News page as they are determined. Tim has also delivered presentations on the topic as a part of the Sunday service. His essays will soon be added to our site for those who are interested to access.

If you are looking for a spiritual community, stop by on a Sunday and check us out. We would love to have you. Contemplative Service - Sundays at 9 am / Worship Service - Sundays at 11 am
As members of the Mammoth Cave chapter of the Kentucky Sierra Club, we attend monthly meetings to learn about environmental issues that are on a state and regional scale. We have delivered presentations on a local level and at the state convention on permaculture in hopes to remind others that the solution to ecological injustices begins in backyards and local institutions. Meetings are held at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm on the third Tuesday of each month at Lost River Cave's Birch Room.
BG DURABILITY GROUP
This is a loosely knit group of farmers, bakers, philosophers, and lovers of life in Bowling Green that are interested in forming a more sustainable and healthy local economy. We started out by reading Bill McKibben's 2007 book Deep Economy. We have since moved onto Ben Falk's 2012 work The Resilient Farm and Homestead and hold bi-monthly meetings. The group is devoted to being more than just a book club - we are trying to come together to form connections and share talents that will enable a more resilient future. We do this by gathering in the spirit of sharing ideas and by holding workshops. If you would be interested in going in, please email Meg directly. She is the group organizer.
WKU Office of Sustainability
The folks at the Office of Sustainability on Western's campus are interested in promoting healthy, sustainable lifestyles. In 2014, the volunteers at the office participated in Project Grow - an attempt to transform their yard into a beautiful edible landscape. Tim has led workshops on hugelkultur construction, plant guilds, and fermentation. Opportunities to join in will be announced on our News page as arise.
