The day of climate action is in full swing on the Chewonki Neck. Two groups – comprised of students, faculty, and local community members – just set out to do trail work on the Back River Trail and at Morris Farm. Eight students are in the kitchen with our cooks preparing food for the “35 Mile Meal” tonight. All week long they have been contacting farmers in a 35 miles radius to gather enough local produce to feed Chewonki plus about 20 members of the local community. Three students are outside plaiting together chains of flowers from our gardens, and arranging bouquets of bright orange, red and yellow oak leaves for decorations. All of this follows in the wake of the morning’s activities: trail work at the Montsweag Brook site, preparing lessons on climate change for students in local elementary schools, making posters and banners, and writing letters to government representatives asking them to support policies that will increase sustainability and slow down climate change. Our efforts here are joined by alumni and friends of Chewonki around the world, and we thank everyone for taking part in the global work party to reduce the impact of climate change.
