(5/2011) By Judy Moores, Green Sanctuary Co-Chair

Earthfest was held on April 17 at the UU Church of Davis in Davis, CA. We had an all-church picnic, Veggie cook-off, a play put on by teens for our children – “How the Flowers Got their Colors” – face-painting, book sale and exchange, etc. as our Earth Week celebration. The play took the children on a walk around the church grounds to see flowers of different colors. At each stop, they also had an activity – looking for insects, smelling or gently feeling poppy petals, etc. We also gave an Eco-hero award to Lynne Nittler and collected over sixty letters in support of the UULMCA’s sacred water effort to get legislation passed on “Human Rights to Water.” We had perfect weather and it was a lovely day!
