Field Notes: Earthcare Resources

While preparing for the fifth assembly of the Florida Interfaith Climate Actions Network (report forthcoming), I drew on the resources of Quaker Earthcare Witness (QEW) Publications (QEW). This is my “go to” site for materials for tabling, retreats, etc. (Our own Brad Stocker, Miami Friends Meeting, is co-clerk of QEW’s Publications Committee.)

The publications include:

  • BeFriending Creation – a quarterly journal that reports and celebrates what Friends, Friends Meetings, and organizations are doing and saying about the global crisis in ecological sustainability.
  • More than 30 trifold QEW Pamphlets for sharing on a wide-range of Earthcare-related issues. The full pamphlets can be downloaded or printed versions can be ordered from the Publications Coordinator .

There is no charge for pamphlets but donations are encouraged to help cover printing costs and postage and handling expenses. If printed, use of recycled paper is encouraged.

  • An updated QEW Earthcare for Children Curriculum for First Day schools. The printable PDF of the document or each individual chapters can download the by clicking here.
  • The QEW Earthcare for Friends Curriculum also has been updated. This Study Guide for Individuals and Faith Communities can be downloaded by clicking here.
