So you’ve already signed A Pagan Community Statement on the Environment, and you don’t want Earth Day (April 22) to go by unobserved. What can you do? Over the next 21 days, I will be offering practical and productive suggestions for how you can honor the Earth this Earth Day.
In #12 in this series, I suggested that building community can be one thing we do to honor the Earth this Earth Day — specifically, building local, sustainable and resilient communities.
But, remember, this is not about self-sufficiency, but building community. We don’t need to provide everything ourselves individually — and we can’t — which is why humans have always lived in cities, towns, villages, tribes, and families. We can relearn the skills of life, teach them to others, and use them to strengthen our communities.
