The Earthcare Ministry is under the care of the Peace and Justice Committee of the Eugene Friends Meeting. The Earthcare Coordinator convenes a support meeting on the first Monday of each month and publishes a newsletter based on rising concerns. Eugene Friends Meeting members have been taking action to care for and restore ecosystems worldwide for decades. The purpose of the support meeting is to encourage each other to take the next steps forward in the lifelong journey of Earthcare based on Quaker testimonies of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship.
