This year, Earth Day will look different. We are not gathering in the public square, but in the living room. We are not attending large outdoor events, but virtual ones streamed from our homes.
St. Catherine’s families may mark the day by enjoying the outdoors, working in their gardens or committing to reduce more, reuse differently or recycle more items. Some of our older students and recent alumni are participating in livestream events; discussing how young people are rising to the challenge of making an impact in the climate movement. No matter what you decide to do, remember that no change is too small to make a difference.

Here also is the link to the documentary film, The Need to GROW, which explores our opportunity as individuals to help restore the earth through sustainable food systems.
