The Green Rule: A World Interfaith Harmony Week Hike

February 8, 2:00 - 4:00, Rouge Park, Toronto

An Afternoon Hike Through Rouge National Urban Park

https://www.facebook.com/events/836792043079091/

This hike through Rouge Valley Urban Park was inspired by the Green Rule' poster created by Faith & the Common Good to demonstrate that each religion and spiritual philosophy has a long-standing tradition of ecological stewardship. During this hike, your guide Michelle Singh will share the Rules as we walk and reflect on our own deep connection with nature. 'Do unto the Earth as you would have it do unto you.'

Hosted by World Interfaith Harmony Week, Toronto www.interfaithtoronto.ca

"... we are called to reclaim our role as community enablers"

St. James the Apostle Church in Carp is forward thinking - especially for a church whose sanctuary is 125 years old! They were quick to see the opportunity in the OPA MicroFit program and are already enjoying the return on investments from their rooftop solar project.

They also completed Green Audits for all three buildings in their parish; the other two sanctuaries are even older.
