Genesis Farm: Reaching for the Sun | Sr. Trinie Pangelinan supports 350 Global Climate Work project

Genesis Farm

During a Genesis Farm Board retreat, community partners around Blairstown involved in “Sustainability” (re land use, food, energy, etc.) came together to hear a presentation by Martin Ping, Exec. Director of Hawthorne Valley Assn. of New York.  To commemorate‘s “Global Climate Work” project, or “10-10-10”, the group posed in front of the solar panels which power Genesis Farm.  Besides climate change, there was also a quiet protest against nuclear power.  In the following weeks, there will be another protest in the surrounding area against the installation of more power lines in the Blairstown area, and some of Genesis Farm’s staff–including Sr. Trinie Pangelinan–intend to participate in this event.  Sr. Trinie ( above, right) is currently doing her sabbatical at Genesis Farm in Blairstown, NJ.
