Materials for Activity
- Optional: Scraps for composting
Preparation for Activity
- If your congregation has a Green Sanctuary team or committee, invite them to lead this tour of the grounds. If not, prepare a list of things to see that demonstrate care for the earth such as a compost bin, garden, recycle bins, compact fluorescent light bulbs, etc.
- Recruit a volunteer to take pictures or video of the tour.
Description of Activity
Tour the congregation's building and grounds for signs of "Green Sanctuary" type projects. If your congregation participates in the Green Sanctuary program, it is ideal to have leaders of that group on hand to talk about it. If not, use the list of congregational green actions you created before the session. If the congregation has a compost bin, have the children take food scraps to "feed" it.
