Hello Ty,

This group is active at First Unitarian Congregation, but not through Transition Ottawa. You can delete the group.

There will be an Earth Day serviceon April 18 at First Unitarian Congregation, 30 Cleary Ave.

SLOWest has graciously accepted our invitation to help us staff a display table after the service, to inform congregants and visitors about transition activities in the area surrounding the congregation.

I'm glad to see EWG actively involved. We should try to spread the word among other religious communities.

Today, EWG members Bob Stevenson, Debra Mair and I were all at an open meeting of Sustainable Living Ottawa West (SLOWest) where, with over 40 others, we listened to the ideas fizzing around the room on how to transform our neighbourhoods to become more sustainable. We will be taking some excellent ideas and inspiration back to our working group and congregation.
