350 Home + Garden Challenge
On May 18th and 19th, thousands of people across Sonoma County will rise to the challenge of creating a more sustainable community. Building upon the incredible success of 628 garden actions in 2010, 1044 actions in 2011 and 2,304 in 2012, our goal this year is to inspire 3,500 registered actions.
Please join! You can start a garden, transform your lawn, hang a clothesline, transfer your money to a local bank or credit union, go car-free…or take action in your own way! Small or large, every action counts. Together, we can become more food and energy independent, and build our communities stronger, healthier, more beautiful, and more resilient! Join this community-wide effort by registering your action or multiple actions today! Doing a lot already? Help others. Inspire a neighbor and help them transform their lawn. Plant extra food and share the bounty.
It is possibly the most important number in the world and so we want to draw attention to it. Top climate scientists say this is the safe upper limit of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to keep a stable climate. Together our actions and alliances add up and create real solutions to the climate crisis.
Stand up and be counted!
Big challenges require inspired vision and bold action. Spread the word; engage your friends, neighbors and coworkers; and REGISTER! Go to www.dailyacts.org/350-challenge.
